      Description

      Currently, Oracle supports only a 64-bit port of Java SE on Mac OS X. It would
      be useful to have a 32-bit port to use with 32-bit native applications and, to
      some extent, in footprint constrained environments.

      Note, however, that the 64-bit JVM running with compressed pointers enabled
      has only a slightly larger memory footprint than a 32-bit JVM, and generally runs
      faster than the 32-bit JVM due to the extra registers present in 64-bit mode.

      Note also that compressed pointers are currently not enabled in the 64-bit
      OS X JVM due to
