Compiling kaffe classes

I've tried to recompile the kaffe class library (Klasses.jar) using the
command 'make Klasses', but the compilation raises several exception
during the analysis of Double and Float classes. In detail, these classes
define POSITIVE_INFINITY, NEGATIVE_INFINITY and NaN as a divided by zero
number (public final double POSITIVE_INFINITY = 1.0/0.0), so the
compilation fails. I'm using the pizza compiler provided with Kaffe.
Why this constants are defined in this way ? Is this the same method used
in the `traditional' class library provided by Sun ?
Thank you very much!
