I don't think it's a problem if we have some kaffe specific discussions
here ;)

1° The patches did not apply with the first NMU (of course! I got to
   change the patches because of the version number!). So, first, I did
   move the patches;

2° Dalibor told me that some patches could be Debian specific and will
   never been applied in upstream. So I did try to re-apply this patches
   in the next NMU. The 00JNIPatch has to be applied. Chatting with
   Dalibor, it seems the other patches do not have to be applied
   anymore.

3° I have upload an 1.1.3-0.3 release of the package but I do not know
   where it is?! (the attachment is the result of the upload I did
   re-try tonight). I do apply the 00JNIPatch in this version of the
   package. (but still do not have any feed back).

4° I did compile kaffe with linux-pthread.

5° I did add jikes-kaffe package in the kaffe source.

Here is the changelog for the 0.3 release.

kaffe (2:1.1.3-0.3) unstable; urgency=low

  * debian/control:
    - autotools-dev, autoconf, automake, m4, libtool has been removed
    because they are not needed when building the package.
    - Suggests jikes
    - added jikes-kaffe package description
    - debhelper now versionned >= 4.1
  * debian/jikes-kaffe.*: files for the jikes-kaffe package.
  * debian/wrappers/jikes-kaffe: added.
  * epoch version changed to upgrade the jikes-kaffe package.
  * debian/rules:
    - added the arch-indep part to build jikes-kaffe
    - kaffe is now built with unix-pthreads
  * debian/patches: removed all the patches but the JNIPatch because it's
    Debian specific.
