No, you don't need an SDK. The Java support is only built when the
package is configured --with-javasupport. But even if it did depend
on Java, that should be something that configure complains about,
not already automake. automake doesn't care for your local installation,
it just processes's. The above error message looks like an
error in parts/javasupport/

Are you sure you have a freshly checked out copy of the newest HEAD
branch? This gives me no problems.
