Re: Eclipse 3.0 Running ILLEGALY on Kaffe

I would assume that the same applies to Kaffe.

Well, if gcc has an explicit "output of this program isn't subject to
the GPL", even though the FSF says[1] that the output of a program
is generally not subject to the terms of the program outputting it
anyway, that probably means that it *might* be arguably subject to
it (depending on how much of gcc ends up in gcc's output), and the FSF
is giving an explicit exception to eliminate any doubt.

Irrelevent. Kaffe is an interpreter, it's not a compiler like gcc. Kaffe creates no output of its input.
