CACAO 0.94 released.

This is a small feature enhancement and bugfix release.  Here is a
short list of the most important changes:

  * support compilation of Interpreter and JIT compiler into one binary (not
    enabled by default)
  * bootstrap ZIP code rewrite (VM startup time improvement)
  * fixed JNI DirectByteBuffer functions, JOGL works now
  * removed most third-party files from the repository, we link to the
    libraries instead
  * removed VM interface Java files which were identical to the GNU
    Classpath upstream version
  * added defineClassWithTransformers to java.lang.VMClassLoader, now we are
    able to build against the generics branch
  * Java compiler which should be used during compilation can be specified
    via JAVAC environment variable
  * a lot of bugfixes

This release supports GNU Classpath 0.19+ and was tested on some
platforms against GNU Classpath 0.20.

With this release we were able for the first time to run most of the
JOGL demos on i386-unknown-linux-gnu and x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

Supported platforms added with this release:

  * powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu (intrp only)

ATTENTION: The usage of CACAO and GNU Classpath has a bit changed due
to some issues on 64-bit distributions.  The proper ./configure
options are:


Currently supported JIT compiler architectures are:

  * alpha-unknown-freebsd5.4
  * alpha-unknown-linux-gnu
  * arm-unknown-linux-gnu
  * i386-unknown-freebsd5.3
  * i686-pc-linux-gnu
  * mips-sgi-irix6.5
  * mips-unknown-linux-gnu
  * powerpc-apple-darwin7.2.0
  * powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu
  * x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu

Additionally supported Interpreter architectures are:

  * powerpc64-unknown-linux-gnu

Information about working applications and some screenshots can be
