I don't know. I'd suggest simply removing it and pointing the authors of
the next (rewritten) AWT peers to GNU Classpath or OpenJDK instead.
Having AWT peers sit in GNU Classpath is preferable to having them rot
away in Kaffe, as at least with Classpath, there is a remote chance that
some other VM may turn up with an interest in maintaining / using the
work later. With Kaffe's AWT, Kaffe is the only VM that can use the
code, and the project clearly does not have the man power to maintain
anything like that at the moment.
