Nothing works perfectly. If you only needs kaffe's regression test
level quality, JIT is very close. (Floating point still has problem,
and I did not get any news someone is now tackle about this)
And I have no idea whether this works with X windows or not.

As far as jit/jit3 is concerned, FTP version (1.1.7) or cvs head does
not make big differences. For jit3, there is a code, but with simple
configure may not allow you to use jit3 right now. (It should be a
safety net for non-developer, I think)

These are my experiences based on QEMU for ARM926EJ-S simulation.
