setjmp should be fine, but there's a bug in the definition of JB_SP, so
if the code uses that to index into the jmpbuf then it will not work 
correctly. The correct offset is the 32-bit value at offset 76 from
the start of the jmpbuf. (jmpbuf is defined as a double array on hppa,
so 76/4 doesn't work, and 76/sizeof(8) is not an integer index into the
