Hi Juan,

Good to have new folks playing with Kaffe!

There is an (older, perhaps out of date?) implementation of Kaffe
threads on top of pthreads in kaffe/kaffevm/systems/unix-pthreads/.
You must configure Kaffe with "--with-threads=unix-pthreads" to get
Kaffe to use that threading implementation.  (By default it will use
the one in systems/unix-jthreads/.)  

The very minimal FAQ/FAQ.pthreads might be a start, also
FAQ/FAQ.jsignal is probably relevant.

I'm not sure if that answers your question, though....
