There is no completely portable way to do this, which is why  
currentThreadStackBase in collector.cpp is #if'd for various  
platforms.  pthread_getattr_np followed by pthread_attr_getstack is  
the approach used in our code on some Unix-y platforms.  If you're  
porting it to a new platform for which the existing code does not work  
correctly you may need to add an additional block in  
currentThreadStackBase that does the correct thing for your platform.
