After 'configure' you have to first chdir into 'config' and run 'make' 
there (it will link the platform specific headers into the config "root" 
dir, which is the location used by everything else):

  $ KAFFESRC/configure
  $ cd config
  $ make
  $ cd ../kaffe/kaffeh
  $ make
  $ cp kaffeh $HOME/bin

For oskit, one has to run the 'oskit-configure' script first:
  $ make distclean
  $ cd config/i386/oskit
  $ ./oskit-configure --srcdir=$KAFFESRC --oskitdir=PATH_TO_OSKIT 

I'm still trying to figure out what to do next, because anything I came 
up with until now resulted in some error... If I found
