I grabbed the latest snapshot via anonymous cvs to make sure I
was clean, installed automake 1.4 (couldn't find a 1.4a anywhere).

But, I still had a problem. Remember, I'm a newbie with kaffe, so
I am guessing here. I don't even know the difference between jit
and jit3, but jit3 would not compile complaining about different
definitions for javaLangArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException.

Assuming that kaffe/kaffevm/baseClasses.h was right in it's definition,
I made these changes to kaffe/kaffevm/jit3/machine.c:

line 68: made it extern Hjava_lang_Class*

(that is, a pointer to Hjava_lang_class)

line 240: removed "&" from &javaLangArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException

Things compile alright, but I made a big assumption here. Someone that knows
what they are doing please deal with the conflict which I either resolved
or made wrong in two places.

Still working on the classpath stuff...will be back to the list after
with the new snapshot..

Thanks everyone for the response.
