try using a more recent version of kaffe. kaffe used
to come with a classes.zip file from sun some 3 years
ago ;) It currently has the core classes packed into a
rt.jar file, that's automatically built from the
sources when you make it from source.

The current CVS head works fine for me with
interpreter engine on arm-linux (i.e. with 9
regression test failures, but compiles itself,
installs and runs HelloWorld like apps just fine).
Tested on skiffcluster ipaqs.

The arm jit doesn't work that well, as it messes up
the compiler during the compilation. You might want to
try using a different java compiler during the class
library compilation phase. Check out
FAQ/FAQ.classlibrary-compile for more info on that.

best regards,
