Hi there,
I have some problems when i try to configure the 
kaffe VM for an ARM processor.
I use a cygwin emulator on 
windows NT, and when i type :
CC=arm-elf-gcc ./configure
I get the following error message:
configure: error: installation or configuration problem: C 
compiler cannot create executables.
This is the log file:
configure:595: checking for a BSD compatible 
install configure:648: checking whether build environment is 
sane configure:715: checking whether make sets ${MAKE} configure:829: 
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of 
Makefiles configure:894: checking for gcc configure:1007: checking whether 
the C compiler (/f/tools_arm/H-i686-pc-cygwin/bin/arm-elf-gcc  ) 
works configure:1023: /f/tools_arm/H-i686-pc-cygwin/bin/arm-elf-gcc -o 
conftest   -I/usr/local/include  conftest.c  
-L/usr/local/lib  1>&5 cpp: installation problem, cannot exec 
`cpp': No more processes configure: failed program was:
#line 1018 "configure" #include 
So, the problems seems to come from cpp.exe 
Any help would be thankful.
