biss-awt with Kaffe?

I'm not at all familiar with Java, but from what I read I thought it
might be a language worth trying. I'm using a RedHat 4.2 distribution
of Linux on a 486.

I've gotten the kaffe-0.91 packages. Compilation and setup has gone
smooth, but I can't get the attached java source to run. Compilation
(using guavac 1.0) goes without error, but when I run it ("kaffe
GUIWindow") this is the result:

Failed to locate native function:
        at java/awt/Font.<init>(119)
        at biss/PackageProperties.getFont(158)

        at java/awt/Frame.addNotify(139)
        at java/awt/Window.pack(115)
        at GUIWindow.main(100)

Is this a setup problem? In the source README it said something about
awt not working (thought it only was in regard to appletviewer), is
this a result of that?

This is a list of the libraries in /usr/local/lib :

Could someone please help me with this?
