Kaffe on Darwin/OS X has never worked as long as I have been trying to
use it. The fact that it compiles is good, but there is something
wrong with the resulting VM. I have spent some time trying to get it
working, but my time is limited. I have not made much progress. I
think it is either the threading or the memory management. I would
very much like to see it working again!
