Interessting. Sometimes ago you suggested to use kaffe as the default JRE
to make things more reproducible. Now, things may have changed. What
should I now put in the Dependends line as prefered JRE?
gcj | java-runtime | java2-runtime
Which JDK should I use for building? gcj? Currently I use kaffe.
