Bug#891697: octave-ltfat: FTBFS w/old Java (on hppa)

Source: octave-ltfat
Version: 2.2.0+dfsg-7
Severity: important
Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)
User: debian-hppa@lists.debian.org
Usertags: hppa

Builds of octave-ltfat for hppa [1] (admittedly not a release
architecture) have been failing lately with numerous errors (and even
more warnings) trying to build under inst/blockproc/java.  hppa is
noteworthy for having an outdated default-jdk package.  (So is
hurd-i386, but octave itself is too old there at present.)

The fact that this error showed up between 2.2.0+dfsg-4 and
2.2.0+dfsg-7 suggests that it may be possible to do without this Java
code.  However, if it really is necessary nowadays, please version the
build dependency on default-jdk to (>= 2:1.8~), noting the epoch.
