No fix in CVS yet, afaik. Fedora Core 1 seems to be doing something 
nasty that breaks our jitters [1]. I've tried to debug it but the Fedora 
Core 1 gdb seems to be broken [2] 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.

[1] Or it's a bug in kaffe's jitters that only shows up on Fedora Core 
1, of all i368-linux distributions ;)
[2] 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.
