"langtools repository"??? Is this in the source or "boot" jdk???
First, thanks for taking the time to reply.
This question is a little ... weird ... but ...
Is the thought of trying to build your sdk with gcj ... heresy (sp?).
If not please give me ... your thought as to whether it has any chance
of working. I would think that if it is for compiles and the like ...
it might work ...
Also, what is in this binary plug? Am I completely wasting my time
since I don't have this? Any chance of getting a powerpc binary plug
(or access to the source so one can be built)?
This question will show my ignorance:
What is an i586 jar file? I thought a jar file contained class files
that would be platform independent? Is there native code in there to
(too? - sorry ain't not no english major)?
