It should use libexc only if you say --with-libexc to ./configure.

On a side note, last time I looked into getting kaffe to run on Alphas, I saw a
very high number of compiler warnings. See

I'll make a jikes-compiled class library jar file available online and post a
link to it. Then you can use --with-precompiled-rt-jar to tell kaffe not to
bother compiling the class library, and concentrate on fixing the regression
test failures.
