Hi Mark,

Both ;) They test for known bugs in (kaffe's) kjc. Since kaffe uses it's 
own kjc by default during the build, it also tests the build environment ;)

It's sort of a reminder that kjc as we have it (slightly patched) is has 
  got some reported (but not fixed yet) bugs. So in theory, when the kjc 
developers check in a patch in their CVS fixing the problem (under the 
assumption that the problem occurs with the unpatched kjc), and tell us 
about it, we can test that fresh kjc quite easily against our regression 
tests for kjc to see if it works. Or when someone else (guilhem and ito 
are the resident kjc gurus) comes up with a patch. ;)
