Hi Kiyo Inaba, hi Dalibor Topic,

    So I could just download from CVS and this one should readily compile 
and build using gcc412-i686-arm-linux-gnueabi-toolchain? Ok, I'll try this 
suggestion. Another thing, is there any other ready built toolchain that I 
may use to compile kaffe for ARM-Linux? Sorry for being so ignorant here, 
this is my first project using linux on an embedded platform.

Thanks and best regards,
Andy Galvez
