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.

That's an interesting one. Do you happen to have your $HOME in your path?

In any case, judging by the last line, this seems to be a libtool 
problem. It would be nice if you could contact the libtool developers at 
http://www.gnu.org/software/libtool/libtool.html and report the bug to them.
