They look very useful to me, thanks a lot for posting them. I hope to 
fix most of the warnings this week. Would it be possible to create an 
experimental kaffe package and run it through buildd afterwards?

My plan is to fix the warnings pointed out by the compiler, and then 
attempt to debug the failures, given access to the platforms.

Hopefully yes. Depending on jikes for the build would be a workaround. 
Doing what SableVM does, and splitting off the class-library as 
architecture independant would be another workaround, if we don't get it 
to work for 1.1.5/1.1.6. Though it'd feel a little bit like cheating, 
since building kaffe's class library with itself is a good stress test, 
as Riccardo's build logs show.
