Perhaps it would help us if you explain what it is you're looking for.
To blow my own horn, you might read about a variety of JITs used for
instruction set simulation; some are summarized and referenced in

%J Proceedings of the 1994 ACM SIGMETRICS Conference

There is also a lot of literature on the topic of special-purpose
runtime code generators (some of which might be considered JITs). My
long list is still pending but there are a few references under

;-D on ( Who's this "Justin Thyme" anyway? ) Pardo
