I am surprised you even succeeded in compiling the Klasses from a 
gcc-"2.96" built kaffe. It used to fail in the past. I will check again.

In the mean time, the packages I built for MDK 8.1/ia64 are available 
here: <http://people.mandrakesoft.com/~gbeauchesne/ia64/kaffe/>. Or any 
other mirror for the 8.1 distribution actually.
