I have added some documentation to the README, INSTALL and NEWS files.
2009-04-29 Mark Wielaard <mjw at redhat.com>
* README: Document systemtap support.
* INSTALL: Document build requirements for systemtap support.
* NEWS: Mention systemtap support.
And updated the wiki http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki/BuildRequirements
to document the new --enable-systemtap and --with-abs-install-dir
options plus build requirements when used.
