I had the same problem :

java/lang/Double.java:25: error:Double literal
"4.9406564584124654418e-324" is too small [JLS 3.10.2]

with kaffe+kjc failing to build the class libraries.
So I used jikes, and reported back what I've found.

hey, that's a start ... thanks for the update. I'll
try a binary search over revisions of the kaffevm
sources and see if I can find the culprit. My main
problem is that kaffe won't attempt to compile the
class library on IRIX before 2003-02-03, so I have to
work around that.
