configure is a bit special with the arguments it takes: when support for 
cross-compilation is enabled, it tries hard to guess the host and target 
platforms for cross-compilation.

You're running the wrong configure, mauve's configure doesn't have 
support for cross-compilation, so you shouldn't be getting this error 
message. Check out FAQ/FAQ.mauve for more information how to setup kaffe 
and mauve.

Finally, JAVA and JAVAC should point to executables, not to paths. So 
what you want is something like this:

cd mauve

(on a single line)
./configure JAVA=/usr/local/kaffe/bin/kaffe
