Congratulations :)

I would mark problems with configure cache as autoconf problems, 
especially if something works without the cache. You could grab autoconf 
2.59 and run the test suite, and report the results on the autoconf 
mailing list, if things fail. A word of warning: they can take a while.

the problem you reported on your (excellent fun, btw) kaffe testing 
website seems to be due to a problem with libtool and dynamic libraries 
on IRIX.

The other problem, with the missing symbols ... I haven't looked into 
that yet :(
