I'm currently discussing the whole situation with James Clark. One of
the ideas is to use the subversion source, which contains the build
system (and works pretty nice BTW, with ant and java-gcj-compat-dev or
SUN Java 6). I'm in favour of writing a source-dist target and the
resulting tarball could be distributed too. Let's wait for the results
of the discussion (I will summarize later for everybody interested).

He told me, that using GCJ has some issues. This should be checked.

Two packages are necessary but are not yet available: testng (ITP
#465326) and iso-relax (iso-relax.sf.net).
