[kaffe] armv5tel

I'm running Debian 3.1 on a armv5tel and I wonder if Kaffe is able to
run on this system. I can run JamVM, SableVM and other VMs but I think
that Kaffe is better for my application as it is on x86.

I'm able to cross-compile it (1.1.5) on a x86 host but it freezes when
calling CallVoidMethod[VA]() and I have not tried yet to debug it
because it might not be an easy task. In scratchbox the Java classes
compilation fails (qemu-arm freezes). I also looked up in Debian APT and
pkgsrc repository and did not find any references to the ARM port.

Is there anything I have do or code to make it work? Is there any
information other than those that I sent at the end of this e-mail that
might help to fix this issue?

Thanks in advance.
