mips problems

has anyone used kaffe on a mips machine recently?  I had some problems
with getting kaffe-1.0.6 to build on NetBSD-1.5/pmax.  I finally got it to
build after adding a handful of patches (which I will feed back once I
believe they're correct).

Now, i get total failure of the regression tests.  I get an assertion

assertion "fidx < nrTypes && size != 0" failed: file
"mem/gc-incremental.c", line 859

/usr/build/pkgsrc/lang/kaffe/work.mipsel/kaffe-1.0.6/kaffe/kaffe/Kaffe -v
at.dms.kjc.Main -classpath
-d . ./HelloWorldApp.java
assertion "fidx < nrTypes && size != 0" failed: file
"mem/gc-incremental.c", line 859

I'm totally new to kaffe and java so I'm feeling a little in over my head.
So my questions are

- are there other parts of kaffe i can test to see that at least something
  is working right?

- is anyone else using kaffe on a MIPS based system and can they verify
  that it should work?

- any suggestions on how to start debugging this?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
