Hi,

  I'm attempting to run Jigsaw on a FreeBSD 2.1 box here,a nd running into
a few problems; there is currently no stable port of the JDK to FreeBSD
(AFAIK; please, correct me if I'm wrong!) and so I'm attempting to run it
under the Kaffe Java interpreter (v0.5); Kaffe seems very stable for
running/compiling Java code, but I've so far been unable to get Jigsaw to
run correctly.

If I set the relevant env variables I get this:

cyburbia# kaffe w3c.jigsaw.http.httpd -root /usr/local/Jigsaw/Jigsaw
Failed to catch exception ... aborting:
        java/lang/NullPointerException

If I give it a -p parameter it comes up with the 'loading properties'
line, but dies with the same error after that.

Guess my question is: has anyone managed to get Jigsaw running under
FreeBSD with either Kaffe or a working JDK port, and (if so) how did you
do it? if this is a more simple problem (am I doin' something wrong?) then
please, enlighten me :)

 -Justin.
