But it fixes a serious bug in the 3.3 libgcj, which I would really like to see fixed.  (Or is there a plan to change dl_iterate_phdr to avoid the lock?)  If we go this route, it would be nice if someone could check the MacOSX fix in separately as well.

If you can feed me with the dl_iterate_phdr() fix for the gcc-3.3-boehm 
version I could test and later if it works and everyone agrees I could 
take this to apply.
