not my strong subject either.

it says:

Engine: Just-in-time   Version: 1.1.x-cvs   Java Version: 1.1
Configuration/Compilation options:
  Compile date  : Mon Apr 28 20:09:14 CEST 2003
  Compile host  : sirizidl.dialin.rrze.uni-erlangen.de
  Install prefix: /usr
  Thread system : unix-jthreads
  CC            : /root/bin/gcc
  CFLAGS        : -g -fno-omit-frame-pointer

so I guess I should try jit3 before starting to debug anything?

Hm.. right now it says:
checking whether a statically linked program can dlopen itself... (cached) no
checking whether -lc should be explicitly linked in... (cached) no
creating libtool
checking for _ prefix in compiled symbols... (cached) no
configure: error: Configuration m68k-linux does not support the jit3 engine
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.30643 (%build)

I've built it using a sligthly modified rpm specfile taken form RH 7.3,
the mentioned files would conflict with the jdkgcj package. 
Anyway how does kaffe interact with gcj? The docs on this subject don´t
appear to be very recent.
