I may be absolutely wrong on this one, and I have no real knowledge
about kaffe, but if i understand the issues correctly:

Mozilla will load if you put it in plugins directory, and this is the usual way
of installing your OJI plugin.

If you make your so that it would be linked (may be statically) with whatever
libraries kaffe needs, it might be a solution for your problem.

Rgrds, (and sorry if this only adds my confusion to yours)
