Kaffe core dumps

I'm trying to get Kaffe working but am not having any luck.  I downloaded
the gmp-2.0.2 and it compiles, but now it crashes anytime I try to run
a class.  (I can print a usage message though).  This is with the snaphot
or 1.0.5, statically linked or dynamic.  Here's the error:

larissa:~$ kaffe hello
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
larissa:~$ gdb /usr/local/kaffe/libexec/Kaffe core

When I had a similar problem with Japhar it was with failing to 
explicitly link to -lpthread.  Could there be something similar here?
I'm on i386-Linux 2.0.33.  I've got libc6, so I'm not sure where this
libc5 thing is coming from.

Sorry if these questions are really dumb.
