Kaffe and Swing

Hey All, 

  I've got Kaffe installed and I kinda want to play with Swing a bit and
maybe perhaps eventually aid in getting swing running on Kaffe. First
and installation question or two tho.... 

  The Swing 1.0.3 distribution appear they not only want the jar files
into the classpath but JAVA_HOME defined. That env var doesn't really
seem to make sence in the Kaffe world. Is this just to appease some
shell script that makes more sence on WinXX or Solarius?  I suppose the
correct hacker course of action is ignore it until it becomes an issue.

  In the meantime I'd be interested to hear "war" stories from other
people who are futsing with Swing and Kaffe.
