If you're porting to a Linux distribution on the PS2, I'd suggest
starting with the Zero interpreter backend. If you're porting to something 
else running on the PS2, I'd still suggesting starting with the Zero backend,
and porting whatever is necessary along with it (libffi comes to mind).
Either way, it may be worth starting with a port of OpenJDK + Zero on 
PS2-Linux first.

Please join the zero-dev mailing list - Gery Benson should be able to 
give you more specific advice there.
