An alternative might be (for Jim's need) to use the GNU lightning
library, which provides a way to generate machine code at runtime, in
a portable fashion (by using a  machine model which is a RISC with 6
registers). See http://www.gnu.org/software/lightning/

You might also look into the way Squeak is compiling Smalltalk to
machine code. See http://www.squeak.org/

Both lightning & squeak are based on Ian Piumarta's code generator
called CCG.

lightning deals with this (thru jit_flush_code).
