Attached patch xpctools-removal.diff (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Simple remove the xpctools support, it is broken in latest trunk again and no maintainer. This completely removes the xpctools code from all parts of the tree.

This removal is wrong.

Trying shaver/timeless for review...

FWIW, the configure+Makefile changes look fine. I think you missed a spot though:

And presumably then you should remove these bits:

darn, i used to use xpctools while i was at cenzic iirc. sadly i've been at nokia for 4 years.

i think i'd kinda prefer to have it working. i half expect people to actively break jsd (which also has a profiler), they've been doing that periodically, whereas xpctools is relatively smaller and thus should be harder for them to break.

i'm currently traveling during a period of holy days, and thus am not really in a position to do much. I will note that I generally respond to requests and have addressed your other bug.
timeless I am willing to work on fixing this, I am sure I will have questions along the way, but willing to work on the code as time permits. If you would rather keep it let me know and I will see what I can do to provide a fix for current trunk.
yes, let's do that, i'm generally available to help, although this week is full of holy days....

Shaver I have updated with teds comments, I also removed the bits of xpctools dnl not sure how to properly handle that part of both files. If you need me for anything else with this let me know and I will work out some time to finish up.

Looks good.  Rebuilding this functionality from scratch atop JSDv2 will be easier than rebuilding the ship at sea.

Yeah, that's probably the best plan.
