Linux 2.0/2.1 incompatibility may cause kaffe to fail

 Edouard pointed out to me that there is an incompatibility between
Linux 2.0 and 2.1 due to various changes in their C library, namely
the signal handling.  More specifically, the incompatibility has to
do with the various versions of Linux's C library floating around.
(libc5, libc6, glibc2, you name it)

Recent bug reports concerning exception handling in kaffe are most 
likely caused by this.

Building on 2.0 and running it on 2.1 or vice versa will not
work.  Always build and run on the same version of Linux.
