I see failures on more tests, including a couple of core dumps
(TestSerializable and finaltest2) and a couple of tests fail with what
looks like out of order output (DeadThread, GCTest).  I've not looked
into these yet.

I have trouble running the applets too, but some of them fail with the
FreeBSD JDK-1.1.6 port as well.

I note running muffin (a filtering HTTP proxy) that kaffe uses lots
(20Mb more!) memory than jdk-1.1.6, but an application I have that
loads images runs just fine.

Kaffe can't be called mature, but it is rapidly improving.  If you
really need something to work *now* on NetBSD I think you're stuck
with the FreeBSD jdk-1.1.6 port compiled with Motif.
