Thanks for the reference, but Libjit does not support PowerPC yet (even the
latest CVS snapshot).

No, there have been significant improvements & bugfixes on the CVS of GNU
lightning. So it is a living project.

Actually, the latest commits on lightning CVS are PPC related! And the PPC
part of GNU lightning is really usable now, provided you use a recent CVS

FWIW, I coded OCamlJit, a just-in-time translator of Ocaml bytecode to
machine code, with GNU lightning. See
