Yes, seems to. I still have to find out about a problem with the
generational garbage collector, triggering some uncaught exception.

Regarding the warnings, the CVS log shows a date as late as 19/10/2009
so it should contain your latest commits:

$ cvs history | sort | tail -1

OpenBSD keeps its own port of the garbage collector (v7.1) with fixes
that apparently have not been accepted upstream.

> Solaris sparc/64 shared should also work (check your environment).

I fixed the environment. Tonight it should be working again.
