  It's really my fault that I didn't express the AWT implementations
and some Kaffe-only classes in FAQ very well. The package kaffe.applet
is only available in kaffeawt.jar, which is disabled in default build.

  I stronly recommend you try to migrate to gcjwebplugin, which is
well maintained at the moment, but the old one shipped with kaffe does
not. However, the import of gcjwebplugin is not done yet, so that you
will not be able to use appletviewer script if you didn't xlib, qt,
or Nano-X AWT backends. Also, you have to modify the appletviewer
script to add -Xkaffe-xlib-awt (or something like this) passed to
kaffe command like.

Thank you for pointing me, and I would like to provide another way
to manage the different AWT backends issues.
