I tried the stupid approach and simply replaced the affected files

  IAxis.java  IHistogram*.java

by the equally named files I found in SVN.  But this was probably to
simple and did not build.  I guess this approached needs somebody who
has some basic Java experience.

I could imagine that this would work.  Any volunteer?
