Hi Roland,

I suppose you need the following change in bytecodeInterpreter.cpp:

! #if !defined(ZERO) && defined(PPC)

because _last_Java_fp isn't defined for sparc and x86.

But do you really mean PPC or PPC64? We use '_last_Java_fp' for PPC64
(see src/cpu/ppc/vm/bytecodeInterpreter_ppc.hpp) so this should at
leaset read:

! #if !defined(ZERO) && (defined(PPC) || defined(PPC64))

If you don't use the CPP interpreter for your closed PPC32 port you
could probably just change the PPC to PPC64.
