Thanks for fixing it so quickly!

I've been toying with the idea of mavenizing the kaffe website, but I
don't have anything conrete yet. Volunteers are welcome ;)

OK. I think I should get the remaining patches on the list in, and roll
a release by the weekend, unless something major happens. Make distcheck
is fixed again, most of debian arches should build fine, tomcat4 works
out of the box on x86, I was able to run gjdoc on all of kaffe and
generate the javadocs, too. So it doesn't look bad at all.

My list of pending patches includes:
mips cmpxchg from ths (debian-mips)
new man page from Wolfgang Baer
alpha warning fixes from kloeri
mips floating point fix from this list
cygwin fixes from Gerrit Haase
freebsd4 fix from djinn (need to try out getting the types right via
Pending patches form Ito on Classpath list.

Is there anything I've missed?

I think we should just release a 1.1.5 now, rather than try to make it
perfect on all platforms. That didn't work so well over tha last year,
so let's try something different: quick point releases. Early, often and
all that.
