i have been having some problems installing kaffe 0.90 on linux
(debian, kernel version 2.0.30, i586). symptoms are:

1. numerous "Library load failed: File not found" errors. (nb compile
   worked fine and all links to libraries are in place, installation
   instructions were followed to the letter) is this a jit problem? an problem?

2. biss awt crashes out with a NullPointerException:
           at java/awt/Font.initializeFont(105)
           at java/awt/Font.<init>(119)
           at biss/PackageProperties.getFont(158)
           at biss/awt/Awt.initFonts(318)
           at biss/awt/Awt.<clinit>(153)
   presumably something to do with the fact that i don't have sun fonts
   on my machine? tried making all the fonts in match
   existing fonts on the system but to no avail.

if anyone can give me a hand with this i'd be very grateful.
