Please see the attachment, for a first attempt at a new port:

This should install the new kaffe.

A few things are still to be sorted out, not sure when I will do that:

* the awt engine can be none, X or Qt. Perhaps I should make this
configurable. I suppose this has to do with appletviewer and javavm,
this is not compiler related.

* is this still jdk1.2? Couldn't find that in the releasenotes

* I still want to work on integrating this in the javawrapper stuff,
but I have to investigate how that works first
