Yep, I've been working on getting Kaffe to build on Cygwin again off and 
on. It used to build as a static binary, but there are lots of warnings. 
Currently it breaks because of some inline functions on headers. So the 
first step would be to move the implementation of those functions to 
respective c files, and then to proceed to clean up the warnings on 
Cygwin. If you want to help out, join #kaffe on irc.freenode.org for 
some a hands on tutorial if I'm around [1] ;).

Cool, that's the spirit! There is a mingw32 port in the pocketlinux 
tree. I can check it in, if you feel like playing with it in order to 
get it to work.
