report-kaffe-bug isn't used anymore.
The jitterbug database is the way to submit bugs.
We really need to get rid of it.

Hmmm, jre.  That's sun's stripped down runtime environment, isn't it?

	alias jre kaffe

not work?  If there's more to it, we can provide a jre command.

You have to do that with Sun's JDK too, don't you?

Btw, kaffe will pick all jar files you put in /usr/share/kaffe
(or in general, $prefix/share/kaffe).  So if you want kaffe to find Swing,
put the swing.jar file in this directory.
