Hi all,

I modified Kaffe while working on my thesis last year and am currently
trying to move the modifications to the latest CVS head.  Unfortunately, I
can no longer build Kaffe.

Here is the error I get.  Signature_name, BridgeMethod_name, and
NewLooj_name are Utf8Const* declared in baseClasses.c, though they are
declared as extern in classMethod.h.  checkPtr() you are probably familiar

gcc -DLOOJVM -g -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -o kaffeh sigs.o support.o
main.o mem.o inflate.o jar.o utf8const.o readClass.o constants.o debug.o

make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I believe that baseClasses.o should be linked during this call to gcc to
fix the issue.  I have tried running automake, then configure, then make
and it doesn't seem to find that dependency.

Any suggestions?
