Actually, 'ineptitude with autoconf' isn't a good description - I think it's
hard to write autoconf macros even with a book etc. None of the autoconf macros
I found were looking for the JVM libs, just the Kaffe equivalent of the 'java'
command, or javac I think. I must get hold of kaffe and have a good look at
getting it to work with KDE java, and the change the jvm libs macro
