Thanks a lot! We really need to have Kaffe 1.1 packages soon.
Unfortunately, your packages don't work - at least on i386. Building
libant1.5-java with your Kaffe package fails. The Ant build process
calls itself during the build (and thus starts a JVM) but using
JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/kaffe does not compile and classes at all. The JVM
simply does nothing.
When using my locally compiled Kaffe 1.1.1 (just ./configure; make; make
install) it works fine (after creating /usr/local/kaffe/share/kaffe). So
I guess the options to ./configure need to be fixed in debian/rules.
Maybe upstream can help us finding the best options?
BTW, does Kaffe 1.1 still need libffi2-dev (on powerpc only) as
specified in debian/control?
As I'm not a DD and also not the kaffe maintainer, I will not upload the
package, nor ask for a sponsor to upload it. As I did nothing special to
build the package, everybody feel free to modify the changelog and
I think we should fix and test your Kaffe 1.1.1 packages and do an NMU
if Ean does not answer within the next few days. Kaffe should also have
at least one co-maintainer since it will be the base for many Java
packages moving to main.
