Thanks for the advice.  However, configure with your options that 
armv5b-linux is not supported:

loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... (cached) /opt/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... (cached) yes
checking for working aclocal... missing
checking for working autoconf... missing
checking for working automake... missing
checking for working autoheader... missing
checking for working makeinfo... missing
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for gcc... (cached) gcc
checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (gcc  ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... (cached) yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... (cached) yes
checking host system type... armv5b-softfloat-linux-gnu
checking for Cygwin environment... (cached) no
checking for mingw32 environment... (cached) no
checking for executable suffix... (cached) no
configure: error: Configuration armv5b-linux not supported

I'm attempting to compile Kaffe 1.0.7, using gcc-3.3.4-glibc-2.2.5 (and 
there is an armv5b-softfloat-linux directory in my toolchain directory).

Thanks much for the help.
