The linux emulated 1.4.2 works on NetBSD current, minus a small bug
that caused NullPointerException threads to bomb out. The native 1.4
is in the works (compiles, runs simple tests, but does not self-host),
but as I am the only one working on don't expect a stable version soon.
My first priority is to make the emulated java work perfectly first.
