We appreciate this and believe the Icedtea infrastructure really is the best
method to bring Free Java to other platforms albeit in this case a not
purely free one. I guess with the Apple PPC we have no choice but to use
JDK5 which is a Sun based implementation. With the bsd port changes upstream
we wouldn't even have patching problems.
BTW, what is the safest make option that will not remove the patches I have
applied. I hand patched the portions of the patches that didn't work and
removed them from the make file after they succeeded. I didn't have much
luck with the make clean-patch option so I opted for this approach
eventhough this may not be the best approach.
It seems that so far I have been able to just fix problems and then run make
again without any problems but I'm not too advanced in my understanding of
the process and my approach so far is not very repeatable.
