They are in IcedTea, bar the cacerts one.  This needs more
work/testing to be in a state to be used by everyone.  Most distros
are handling this locally and we need a solution for all if one is to
go in IcedTea.

I believe Pavel was working on one, but he hasn't responded on it recently.

As to the issue encountered by tjoen, I've never seen this before and I
don't see any patch in BLFS that would fix it.
