Added methods are:

+  // The following methods were copied from
+  // AbstractMap of classpath because kaffe's does not have ones.
+  static final boolean equals(Object o1, Object o2)
+  {
+    return o1 == null ? o2 == null : o1.equals(o2);
+  }
+  static final int hashCode(Object o)
+  {
+    return o == null ? 0 : o.hashCode();
+  }

These are used in WeakHashMap of GNU Classpath and are defined
in AbstractMap of GNU classpath which WeakHashMap extends.

I am afraid copying AbstractMap of GNU classpath to kaffe
will make things difficult, so I copied from classpath
only WeakHashMap.java and used kaffe's AbstractMap which
does not define the said methods.
