Well, the problem I see is, I don't know the historical reasons how
stuff was done and I don't know where these defines are used. A grep
can help here, but the knowledge of a long-year Sun employee would
definitely help a lot.
Of course I can try to make a patch, but definitely I'll need help to
verify that what I've done is correct (btw. IcedTea people will also be
of great help here).
