Subject: SPARC 64 bit code generator updated to support Linux

My OCaml patch to generate native code for 64 bit SPARC
systems now supports 64 bit Linux as well as Solaris.

This April 21 version also fixes a bug in the 64 bit
version of the caml_callback_exn internal function
which made user-installed signal handlers unreliable
in the April 9 version.

Read the README file or run the script
from the parent directory of the ocaml-3.08.3 source.
The configure script will select 32 or 64 bit code
to match the C compiler, so a typical configure
command for 64 bit code would be:
	./configure -cc 'gcc -m64'

Thanks to David Mentre for giving me access to a
SPARC/Linux system for testing.
