Really? You have the assembler and the interpreter (and stubs) done?
If not I suggest you build the compiler-less version of the jvm first 
(formerly know as the core build). The target for those builds are 
jvmgcore, fastdebugcore, or productcore.

Not much docmentation on the .ad files. Best thing is to look at the .ad 
files from the existing architectures and pick the one closest to your 
architecture and start hacking.
