It's an arm, right? I thought it would just work then ;) But afaik, 
1.0.7 was quite broken on arm-linux, for example.

Seriously, though, Helmer fixed the arm jitter in the CVS, you may want 
to try that one out first, since I think he fixed a few bugs in the arm

Beside 'use the CVS, it should be much better on arm' and 'read 
FAQ/FAQ.debugging' for debugging tips, I'm afraid I can't offer much 
advice on that one. Make sure you get the interpreter working first, and 
proceed to the jit afterwards, as the interpreter can give you tons of 
debugging output (./configure --enable-debugging, run with kaffe 
-vmdebug list for a list of options) which could prove helpful in your task.
