Trying the IBM JRE (both amd64 and i386) on x86_64 yields "Failed to
find VM - aborting". Ktrace shows nothing useful (it loads libjvm.so,
then aborts). Hrmph.

That'd be excellent news. Back when I was running x86 arch, the
EyesBeyond patches got me to a relatively stable JDK, which didn't
depend on all the compat_ cruft. I'd love to be able to get back to that!
I look forward to seeing the native build!
