Kaffe 0.92 can be "upgraded" to support AWT with the latest BISS-AWT 0.94
package.  This package can be downloaded from:

There are some known compile errors in this package but they can be
avoided with simple patches (which I can provide if needed).

The Kaffe+BISS-AWT combo works great over here with all BISS-specific
graphics classes.  If what you need are "peers" for regular java.awt.*
widgets, BISS-AWT still has a few problems in that area.
