What's the problem? I use BSD/OS 2.1 and running kaffe -version I get:

# kaffe -version
Kaffe Virtual Machine
Copyright (c) 1997 T. J. Wilkinson & Associates, London, UK.
Engine: Just-in-time   Version: 0.91   Java Version: 1.1.2

I don't recall doing much to get things running, apart from the .globl

Mind you, there is so much that DOESN'T work past the tests that it's
not worth compiling right now : <

To be fair it's the graphic stuff that is pretty broken..  Perhaps
0.9.2 has a useable companion AWT library now??  Guess I'll find out
soon enough.
