You can should still be able to use jikes for the kaffes-specific code,
afaict. It works for me on
Ubuntu, at least, so I assume jikes does not hiccup 1.5-ish class files.
On the other hand, yeah,
for compiling GNU Classpath you need a 1.5 capable compiler, or you need
to use a prebuilt
glibj.zip file for that release. Unfortunately, other than ecj and
javac, I'm not aware of actively
maintained (and adequate for the task) free software Java 1.5 compilers,
and they are both
written in Java, so make little sense without either a JVM, or some
cross-compiler setup that
translates them to something else (native code, C, .NET code, etc.)
