Thanks a lot for the patch, I can reproduce the build failure now, and 
I've fixed the build for the interpreter engine on arm linux (3 
regression tests fail, which I think has more to do with 
fdlibm/classpath, than Kaffe, as there is a patch or two for arm issues 
in the classpath bug tracker).

I'll look into fixing the build on arm-linux with the jit engines next 
using your patch. I've got aurelien's ARM Debian OABI image running,
and I hope I can get one with EABI running, too.
