These problems are fixed in the current CVS tree (I
guess it's the include path issue).

Yeah, please post them to the list. I've just
downloaded the latest x86-darwin iso from Apple
(6.02), so I'd like to give it a try with the latest
sources and your patch merged in.

Before I can merge them in (when we get them to work
as expected), I need to know if you've decompiled
Sun's sources, used them in any way, or signed an NDA
that would prevent you from contributing to kaffe. If
you're not "tainted", then post freely ;)

x86 the only version I could provide some assistance
for, as I don't have access to a powerpc-darwin
