[kaffe] Installation on Windows 2000

I was able to get it start building as well, but I was attempting to use 
pthread support, which Cygwin choked on.  Jim had recognized the issue, 
but so far no one has proposed a fix.  I'll give it another shot, but 
IIRC the autoconf scripts were PITA (sorry Jim) to fix.  The second 
problem is how do you intend to bootstrap kaffe now that it requires a 
javac to build?   As for this issue, is it possible to bootstrap kaffe 
with gcj?  I suppose one could try using the window native jdk, but 
again that is a PITA and not a gpl'ed solution...  Oh well, just my 
thoughts on the topic.
