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