My fault, it was a problem with my setup. I have 4 different j2sdk
versions installed in parallel and I did not make the correct
changes to debian/rules to make the compilation work with one of
I tried it a few more times and finally managed to compile the
package by just changing the classpath and the javac command in
$(JAVA_HOME)/bin/javac -classpath $(JAVA_HOME)/jre/lib/plugin.jar [...]
and pointing $(JAVA_HOME) to the appropriate directory. Maybe you
could introduce 'JAVA_HOME' in debian/rules to make this easier?
Or even 'JAVA_HOME_DIRS' with the default directories from the
standard 'java-package' j2sdk1.4 packages preset?
Thank you for your fast reply and sorry for the noise.
