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.
