Sorry forgot to add that if I try to build a 64bit JVM under Ubuntu 
11.04 with GCC 4.5.2 I get the following compile time error:

/home/azeem/hs/hotspot/src/os/linux/vm/os_linux.cpp: In static member 
function ‘static bool os::Linux::hugetlbfs_sanity_check(bool, size_t)’:
/home/azeem/hs/hotspot/src/os/linux/vm/os_linux.cpp:2853:43: error: use 
of assignment suppression and length modifier together in gnu_scanf format

The fix is to remove the length modifier.
