I don't know how i386 Linux emulation is able to support the JDK. I've
already fixed 2 machine independent bugs in Linux emulation to get the
JDK working on the PowerPC, and it's still not fully functionnal (green
threads seems okay, native threads have some problems).

One reason could be that i386 is a bit different (eg: it has
__HAS_MINIMAL_EMULATION, powerpc does not, you can also have a look to
the problem I described today on this list about terminals)
