I believe Kaffe requires an atomic 64-bit integer type built into the
compiler (long long or __int64 or something like that). My impression
was that it would not be possible to compile it with a compiler not
supporting this feature (for instance, replacing it with a struct of two
32-bit ints or so).
  I'm not familiar with Windows compilers in this respect, but I suppose
the gcc port should be usable.
  I have gotten the free MiNT Unix with gcc for my 68030 Mac and hope to
try to compile kaffe for the 68k Mac when I have a spare moment.
  As an aside, I think this means that Kaffe is not ANSI C :-(
  Correct me if I'm wrong.

	Happy Hacking,
