No fix in CVS yet, afaik. Fedora Core 1 seems to be doing something
nasty that breaks our jitters . I've tried to debug it but the Fedora
Core 1 gdb seems to be broken  so I didn't get too far.
So until a brave Fedora Core using developer manages to fix the jitter,
you'll have to use the interpreter. Configure kaffe with
--with-engine=intrp on your ./configure line, and it should build fine.
In any case, the current CVS has seen further improvements in
serialization from Guilhem, so you may want to try it out anyway.
 Or it's a bug in kaffe's jitters that only shows up on Fedora Core
1, of all i368-linux distributions ;)
 It failed to show me useable backtraces of anything, since it
coudn't find the source code, or something like that, as far as I
remember. A lot of other things seem to be broken in Fedora Core 1, but
going into it would be a long pointless rant that doesn't belong on the
kaffe mailing list.
