The XFAIL part is now done.

I'm currently waiting to finish making kaffe build with a classpath 
install first, as building glibj.zip in the emulator takes too long.

Still todo.

Still todo.

I've got a local version of that building, using a slightly adapted 
classpath.m4 from Cacao and a local install of classpath. I'm working on 
making the regression tests build & work with classpath 0.93 (closest to 
the version in our tree).

That could work out of the box with the locally installed Classpath, 
once the previous part is done. I'll also merge in the stack of build 
system patches that went into Classpath after 0.95 to make it work with 
automake 1.10.

D) Merge in tbfg's m68k patch. Kiyo, could you take a look at it?
