Hmm...looks like the build script thinks that dumpversion is a command
rather than a command-line option to gcc.  If the build script uses the CC
env var, you could always pass it in that way rather than editing the
script itself: CC='gcc -dumpversion' build.sh
or something like that.  I'd have to d/l the source to see just how it
works (takes forever).

Dunno for sure...I'm no Java guy (I know the language, but have never
actually written anything in it).  I suspect that you're correct, though,
looking at kaffe's description (JVM implementation) and still relies on
the classes provided by a JDK...

If I knew more about Java and actually used it here and there on linux, I
would've packaged an installer for Compaq's JDK long ago.  I guess I'm not
the only one in the same boat, though, since nobody else has done any
packages either :-P
