I believe I have this working now, see latest commits on salsa[*].

I think I still have some tidying to do before this will work properly
in a clean build environment, and the fix depends on an unreleased
change in pomegranate (the 1.1.0 in the archive is showing up as
1.1.0-SNAPSHOT >_<), but I should have this uploaded by EOW.

Note that Leiningen is still a lot slower and has different behaviour on
jdk11, and users will likely prefer to run it on jdk8, but they can
override the default Java by exporting JAVA_CMD fwiw. I might include a
note of this in release news.
