Do you mean the Java classes or the Kaffe libs ?

If you mean the Java classes, I completely erased /usr/local/share/kaffe
before reinstalling.  For the other lib, I will retry if you suspect that
could cause the problems.

Also, I don't perfectly know the installation directories of the old Kaffe.

Thank you anyway, you putting me on another track...
