The CVS version of Kaffe can be configured to use libffi. Get libffi from, install it and don't forget to
specify --with-libffi for configure.

It is known to work on G3 (PowerMac) and 850 embedded processors
(RPX/Lite). Threads and AWT are broken. Kopi (java compiler) is Ok even on

I'm working (sort of) on the native version of sysdepCallMethod for
PowerPC. Feel free to beat me if you can :-)
