Hi folks! I'm trying to build kaffe v0.9.1 on a x86 machine running
BSDI 3.0, but it won't build. After having changed the "global" to "globl"
in the config/i386/trampolines.c file, I get the following linking error:

make -k
rm -f libkaffe_vm.a
ln -s libkaffe_vm.a.0.91 libkaffe_vm.a
gcc -g -O  -I. -I./../kaffevm -I../../config -I./../../config -I../../include -I./../../include -o kaffe main.o -L../kaffevm -lkaffe_vm  -L../../packages/ -lkaffe_native -L../../packages/ -lkaffe_net -L../../packages/ -lkaffe_zip  -lipc -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lX11 -lkaffe_vm -lipc -lm -lc
ld: premature end of file in symbols of ../kaffevm/libkaffe_vm.a(machine.o)
*** Error code 1 (continuing)
`all' not remade because of errors.

I do have the stuff installed
BTW.  Any hints on what may be wrong? If anyone has built any recent
version of kaffe successfully on BSDI 3.0, please let me know.
