Kaffe from the CVS should work on arm-linux (which I assume runs on XScale as
well) in interpreter mode well enough to rebuild the class library. There are
some bugs left with interpreter mode, and there are some bugs left with the
jitter on arm as well, as compiling the class libraries fails midway through.

See http://www.kaffe.org/pipermail/kaffe/2002-August/008803.html ,

If you want to work on the jitter, you could get in touch with Jared Boone who
was interested in seing some movement there as well. See

Last ARM patches came from Peter Naulls, who did the port to RISC OS.
