here I am... back again...
so... I update kaffe with the lastest CVS but it still ask me about _inet_pton funcion (and the others) while trying to link kaffe-bin...

Here it is the output of the make command as an attachment...
there is also an undefined reference to _machine_debug_filename... even if I asked for a --disable-debug --disable-xdebugging...
