did you check if what you compiled actually works? run "make check"

what version of kaffe are you using?

The current CVS version compiles  but fails several regression tests, as 
you can see in my last report posted here a few minutes ago.
Also note that currently you need jikes with the current CVS as kjc is 
no longer included.
Also note that I fail to compile due to out-of-memory on my hp-ux 10.20 
box using jikes. I Have 96Mb of ram and evidently too little swap space.
Using a pre-built rt.jar can help this.

Ask robilad to make you a release snapshot, since snapshots contain 
compiled class library thus making everything faster.

We will get kaffe on hp-ux back on track :)
