 The name of the encoding as provided by Kaffe is 8859_1, not ISO-8859-1.

If your stuff works with Sun's JDK, we'll of course fix Kaffe.
This would be done by subclassing kaffe.io.ByteToCharConverter and
kaffe.io.CharToByteConverter in the same manner as it's already done
for 8859_1.  Alternatively, we might introduce a list of aliases.

If your stuff doesn't work with Sun's JDK, then the name of the
encoding may be your problem.  Maybe a configure file would have
to be changed in that case?
