[kaffe] Error in build-system when crosscompiling

I'm trying to cross-compile Kaffe for my ARM (or better, PXA Xscale) target.
Using FAQ/FAQ.crosscompile helped a lot.

However, in tests/regression/Makefile the build system is trying to run
regression tests in the subdirectories "compile_time" and "run_time". This
fails not work with an arm-compiled kaffe-bin on an x86 system.

The crude hack:

$ perl -pi -e 's:compile_time run_time ::' test/regression/Makefile

worked for me, but a better check in Makefile.am for crosscompilation migth
be needed.

Try Linux 2.6 from BitKeeper for PXA2x0 CPUs at
