Hi there,

I got Kaffe from CVS and tried to compile it myself but I cant 
understand why it needs jikes and whi it needs a Java VM. The configure 
script barks about these two pre-requisites. Wasn't Kaffe supposed to 
provide both a Java compiler and a Java VM?

I could also find no info on how to use another Java compiler in place 
of jikes (wanted to use gcj). If Kaffe build really needs a Java 
compiler and Java VM, couldn't it use gcj / gij and so I could build it 
using only free software?

[]s, Fernando Lozano
