building j3

(Only tested on Red Hat Linux 6.2, definitely not for windows)
First download http://irafs1.ira.uka.de/~marcus/Squeak/j3/Squeak-3.0pre2-j3.11k-UNIX.tar.gz. Extract it, and cd to 3.0/. This is your source root.

Now, it should complain about an "undefined reference to `print_insn_i386_att'".

When using newer g++ to compile this, I need to do the following things:

1. ARCHDEP macros doesn't work for some reason. Replaced with the correct header file names.

2. String constants are now const's, so some changes must be made in debug.h, etc.

3. -Werror should be removed from CXXFLAGS

4. Need to insert #include<stdlib.h> in some files, or abort() will be used before declaration.

And the thing doesn't work. There are a lot of divide errors with 3.0-3552, and 3.2 or 2.8 are even worse.
