I don't know where the problem is.  I have been looking into this for a 
while, but I don't know enough about kaffe either.

Apple's javac should work, but I have never used it for this.  I have 
imported the source into Eclipse and then export the jar.  I think 
there is some Win32 class that will not compile without the correct 
setup.  I just deleted it(them).
