Since Kaffe uses the AWT implementation from GNU Classpath, it would be
of the similar ways porting to Gtk+/DirectFB.  Currently, GNU Classpath
AWT implementation depends on some Xlib and X extensions, and you have
to rewrite the small pieces of Gtk+/GDK AWT backend within gtkpeer.

Otherwise, it won't work.  Also, please make sure that you are using the
experimental and up-to-date CVS head of Kaffe since kaffe 1.1.x is
so-called "development release".
