I think you can use c.getDeclaredXXX() in place of c.getXXX() to get
ride of inherited fields/methods.

Raw idea:  Did you think it's possible to use a ClassLoader to load
jdk1.1 classes and an other to load Kaffe (or GNU Classpath) classes ?

If so, you could have a one pass comparison framework.

An other solution could be to use a classes manipulations packages as
at.dms.classfile or gnu.bytecode.  Both use GPL Licences.
