0.14.3 still runs under Jaguar (I just tried.)  Rebuilding the kernel
fails (because of some header file problem; I hadn't tried that before.)
I checked a fix into the main CVS tree.

0.14.4 might not (I haven't checked to see if anything I've done recently
might break under Jaguar.)

The new interface translator is based on GCC 4.0; I'm not sure if it's
possible to build GCC 4.0 under Jaguar, or if a binary buit on Panther
or later will run under Jaguar (it may need a more modern C library
than Jaguar provides.)

I'll try to test things under Jaguar before releasing 0.14.4; if I can
catch little things like the missing header file issue, I'll try to do
so (and it might indeed be a pleasant surprise if most things work.)
