Re: /usr/lib/jni not put in java.library.path, sun java 5 and 6

affects 382686 sun-java6-jre

I would to revisit this bug. I agree with the debian policy decision
to keep compiled binaries in /usr/lib/jni/, but I'm getting frequent
bug reports and emails form users of a library I maintain telling me
that I installed the library to the wrong location [1-8, and personal
correspondence]. I know we can't change the binaries, but can we
somehow export this simple variable [9] in a wrapper so that all
systems (that install sun-java) know to look in /usr/lib/jni? I think
that would be a simple solution that will satisfy users so that they
don't think our libraries are all broken.

Thanks for the consideration.
