Don't bother with the port/package for OpenBSD. I've
done it already. Its not committed yet because there
are issues to be debugged. I think you will find that
using kaffe on OpenBSD with anything more then
a simple hello world app will crash. I should get around
to debugging it in the next week or so.

BTW, I would not call downloading a few distfiles, increasing
limits and typing make install very cumbersome, but
that's just my opinion. We all know opinions vary. :-)
