I have been trying to figure out why this works on Fedora 8 but not on OS
X.  I have a clean install of Fedora 8, with the  yum updates (the alsa
fails by the way).

I have removed all the libgcj*.jar  and rt.jar files that I can find.
Icedtea6 still compiles the java classes.  This makes no sense to me, if I
have removed all of the classes used by java, how is it still able to
compile?  What library/jar has the java classes?
