Well, in the long term we need to look at splitting things up a little and
generating some dev packages, but I'm unhappy doing this until the dmake
tempfile vulnerability is fixed and I can upload a standalone dmake. Ken
has started work on the fix so I hope it won't be too long. However, it'll
take a while to get the split done etc., so I guess you're looking for a
solution that would work with the current packages, too. Probably the
easiest thing to do is to supply a path to the source packages through
DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS - have a look at how the main packages use jdkhome= to get
the JDK path if supplied. Maybe you can use a similar option.
What exactly do you need from the packages? If you say what you are using
I'll try and consider it when prioritising the split.
