Sorry, I can't say about JIT.  Some kaffe ports include the JIT capability
and others do not.  I'm running mklinux on a PPC and that kaffe port
doesn't include the JIT capability at present, just the interpreter and
compiler.  Also, I'm just learning Jigsaw, so I wouldn't be the one to ask
about comparing performance.  Seems fine to me, though.

Wish I could be more informative, but we're just now getting started, here.

Good Luck;
