   I'm sure I don't understand all the differences 
   between Kaffe and Sun's  JDK, but why would one 
   need to 'port' Classpath to Kaffe?  Shouldn't most 
   Java just work?  


But the native code and VM dependant code does need to be ported.
This is stuff like the primordial class loader and the Object

To a lesser extent things like Socket implementation have to be

   Does Classpath use some features that Kaffe doesn't have, 
   or uses different syntax for, or has but not quite in the same 
   manner, ... what?

It's simply a question of getting the right hooks into the VM code.
