If you want to build kaffe *on* the PDA, the build process is the same 
as on a desktop box: copy the source over, untar it, configure && make 
&& make install.

If you want to cross-compile for the PDA, check out

The simplest way to deal with paths is to make sure you configure kaffe 
with the prefix where you want it installed on your PDA, and to move the 
installation from the desktop to the PDA.

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/my-kaffe/ && make && make install

and then copy over the  /usr/local/my-kaffe/ directory to the PDA.

hope this helps,
