Is anybody interested in porting the JDK6 to MIPS arch

The free Sun Studio 12 compilers are available for Linux X86.
I'm not sure if the dbx in it can debug a g++ built app (it can debug a
gcc or
plain C build app), dbx might be a better answer than gdb,
if it could understand the g++ debug information.
The other possibility would be to try and build Hotspot with the Sun
Studio 12
Linux compilers, then the dbx will definitely work, but I don't know of
that has done that yet.
We want to try this at some point, to see if the performance might
improve over g++/gcc,
but I haven't had the time to try it. I'd welcome someone giving it a try.
