Re: Getting ant and kaffe to play nice

Depending on which Kaffe you are using this is probably largely my fault.
There are a number of features (including even X AWT GUI support) that are
silently disabled during the Kaffe build if you do not have the proper header
files installed. One of these things is BigInteger and other arbitrary 
precision support. Unfortunately I was not using anything which demanded 
these classes at one point and did not notice that Kaffe was silently 
disabling support.

This should be fixed in the Woody Kaffe .deb.
