Uh sorry, I wasn't clear then. I thought I had successfully lobbied against
using JAVA_HOME for finding executables or Sun's classes. The only remaining
reason why that's not possible would be the JNI includes, right?
I haven't used JNI much, so it would be nice if someone who packages a JNI
library could chip in here and provide some insight about what's necesary, and
how they use to find it.
