This one is the major sticking point that I see, mainly due to java
breaking. I uploaded xcb with a patch that allows you to work around the
breakage by setting an environment variable, but it might not be the best
solution. I took a look at the java packaging, and it's feasible though
non-trivial to wrap the java binary up to set this environment variable. I
may try and work up the patch over the next week though, if the java
maintainers don't respond.

I haven't checked closely, but I'll try to do so today or tomorrow.
