Wow, thanx Michael !!!
it works perfectly ...
Today, I can tell it was a good idea to wake up  because I have learnt
something interesting : pax ...
And it seems it's going to solve my other problems, because the configure
process does not complain about my sun-sparc-solaris2.5.1 box !!!

Thanks again to everybody, I will now test the installation, and then the
execution to see if it  better than the 1.0b3 package

Some directories inside the daily snapshot have strange permissions, which
prevent tar to write into the very directories it just created itself.

I use something like this to unpack the snapshots:

gzcat kaffe-snap.tar.gz | pax -r

/bin/pax (on a standard installation of Solaris 2.5 on SPARC)
supports several different archive formats (including tar) and
by default ignores the permissions stored in the archive when
extracting items from it.

Hope this helps.
