openjdk builds on hppa, but doesn't run (yet). Andrew Haley once debugged it and 
found out at least one things which would need to be fixed: the assumption in 
the C++ interpreter that the stack always grows downwards, and not upwards as on 

please could one of the hotspot developers sched some light on this, how easy 
this might to be fix, and if there are other assumptions?

thanks, Matthias
