Well I did build it it compiled but now it doesnt work on the target it says:
Loading java/lang/Object.class
Couldn't find or load essential class `java/lang/Object' (null) (null)

when I start the vm probably coz of all those not kosher things I did

Here are the issues I had if that can help anybody:
-the test program in the main configure and in the libltdt/configure wont 
work obviously since the target is not the same as the computer youre 
compiling on
-I dont know why, but my guess is becoz of the compiler I have but the 
SIZEOF_... didnt work so I had to remove the #if and give jint, jlong the 
right values according to the values on the target
-config/md.h was #include "./i386/linux/md.h" instead of 
-I had to put #include "powerpc/sysdepCallMethod.h" in 
kaffe/kaffevm/support.c so that it would get the right assembly instructions

Hope that helps a bit
