Yeah, I noticed that, and that's why I started merging the patch. However,
[jsantala at yavin janosvm-0.6.0]$ janosvm /usr/libexec/Kaffe: relocation
error: /usr/lib/libkaffemisc-1.0.6.so: undefined symbol: kaffevmDebugMask
[jsantala at yavin janosvm-0.6.0]$ /usr/jre/bin/Kaffe /usr/jre/bin/Kaffe:
relocation error: /usr/jre/lib/i386/libkaffevm-1.0.6.so: undefined symbol:

The build-scripts ar eunfortunately quite a pain, so I'm not sure I'll get
around to looking at that very soon. It's probably related to the same
problem preventing xdebugging as well.

While on the topic, could you comment on why the xprof code has been
changed to use gc_malloc with GC_ALLOC_FIXED alloc-strategy instead of
KLMALLOC? Is that something that the common Kaffe version could benefit
