This is something I looked at a year ago, but at the time support for
providing full state to exceptions (such as the effective address of a SIGSEGV
signal, used for null pointer exception handling in JikesRVM) seemed to be
missing in MacOSX. I think MacOSX 10.1 or later (is there a later?) may have
fixed this limitation, so the port should be easier. I haven't had time to
look lately, but it would be "a good thing" if someone took the time to port
to MacOSX. I certainly encourage any such effort.
