That's odd.  How did you install it?  I downloaded the .deb and used dpkg.
guavac shouldn't require a JVM as it's just a compiler.  It may require a
set of classes (the classes.zip supplied with guavac is just stubs), but
IMHO shouldn't *require* a JVM.

At first when I just got the SE/30 running I was able to compile java
using guavac and send it to my x86 box (which had the Sun jdk)

That, I don't know.
