Hi Benjamin,

That's an option provided by autoconf's macro to check for X11. Since
Kaffe's Xlib AWT is not built by default, you don't have to specify it.

The default AWT is the gtk+ implementation, which usually uses X11 on
most Linux-ish systems. It comes from an external project that's
integrated into Kaffe, to provide the class library, called GNU
Classpath. There is a bug in the configure script for 1.1.7 such that
--disable-native-awt does not disable the built of that integrated gtk+
based AWT implementation. That's why you need to explicitely turn it
off. That has been fixed in CVS head.
