New port in progress

I was wondering if there was any-one working on a BeOS port of Kaffe.
I downloaded the last release yesterday (kaffe-1.0.b3 not the snapshot)
on the net and
after a few hours, i managed to have a complete make (actually even ./
configure) that build on BeOS.
So even if it doesn't regress correctly for HelloWorldApp.java, i
already have a working version of Kaffe, ie it looks like it finds its
libraries (i can see the help message, version) :
Kaffe Virtual Machine

Engine: Just-in-time Version: 1.00 Java Version: 1.1
but as soon as it starts, i end up with
It's not ThreadDeath, and there's no exception handler.
This is something I cannot handle.
So i know that i have some work to do in jthread, and the signaling
system, but i'm really impressed to have a compilable version, i can
now start to dig in the code to find the problems.
is it easier to work first on the interpreter ? i guess so but i first
try the jit.
Can you tell me if i'm doing any thing that some one esle is working on
I would love to help, you really made a great job here, but it will be
stupid to work on a new port if one is already on the way..
I also have a question about autoconf, i got it from GeekGadgets on
BeOS, what arguments should i pass to it ?. right now i made a
configure and modified slightly the config.status to setup all
