Could you explain what a KIT is? It looks like an acronym, but I'm not 
sure. AT9200 is an Atmel
ARM7, right?

Could you explain what a .BIN file is? I assume it's some kind of binary 
archive? Like a .tar file?

I'm not quite sure what porting means in the context of your 
requirements. Do you mean how to
create a binary that works on all arm CPUs with linux? Or are you trying 
to port Kaffe to a specific
Atmel ARM core and want to make modifications to support it?
