Thanks, good to know. I tried lots of hours to get them compile and build on a
'slow' 7200.

I try to build JX under pre-R5. As far as now I got it to build, but when I
play around with the menu options I get a core dump. 
As pointed out by John Lindal, one of the JX guys, this situation happens when
the vtable-thunks are enabled.
So I decided to try it by myself.
(I have to re-verify my system what libstdc++ and so on, but my rpms are from
4.1.99 as I remember)
