64 bit Erlang on Opterons?

By the way, RTLD_NEXT is not a 1003.1 (2004) standard, so HiPE should make it optional anyways.  (See: http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/)

I would be interested in getting HiPE running on QNX Neutrino 6.2.1.  There is a port of Erlang/OTP R9C to this version of Neutrino... all except for HiPE.  (See: http://www.openqnx.com/Article229.html)
 
The issues with HiPE & QNX that the porting team identified there were:
(1) dlopen doesn't include support for "RTLD_NEXT" in QNX
(2) SA_ONSTACK and SIGSTKSZ are not defined in QNX
 
Also, as Vlad pointed out, there might be the same stack overflow problem on QNX as the circa 2001 problem that occurs under Windows.
 
Can the HiPE team make some comments on these issues?  Might there be workarounds in HiPE to the QNX deficiencies in (1) & (2) above?

Just for the record: We have no _policy_ of not supporting Windows; we
just do not have access to a Windows machine with access to developer's 
toolset to test things out.

We have not heard anything about this. If there are volunteers out there
who can try things out and keep us posted, we can try to find solutions
to the problems they report to us and see where this leads us...

Best,
Kostis.
