Thanks for that! I have been interested in SableVM for a while, and used it long ago, but
it hasn't worked on my amd64 machine, ever. I'm keen to try it. Is it still being
developed or maintained? For a while the main web site wasn't available, and there was
some talk about it merging into the Apache JVM project, but I don't know what's happened,
there.

The SableVM itself appears to have built OK from ports, but the classpath did not install
properly. I've just submitted a PR about it:

Thoughts?
