Thanks! That seems to be working now - I can build berkeleydb too.
The next project to fail when trying to build OOo with Java support is
'sandbox', but I'm afraid it's because of the use of sun internal classes
for the JDK. I see errors like:
ClassContextImpl.java:1: error:Can not found "sun/tools/jar/JarVerifierStream" [JLS 7.5.2, 7.6]
JarInputStream.java:1: error:Can not found "sun/tools/jar/JarException" [JLS 7.5.2, 7.6]
ProtectionDomain.java:1: error:Can not found "sun/security/provider/SystemIdentity" [JLS 7.5.2, 7.6]
ProtectionDomain.java:1: error:Can not found "sun/security/provider/SystemSigner" [JLS 7.5.2, 7.6]
Resource.java:1: error:Can not found "sun/applet/AppletAudioClip" [JLS 7.5.2, 7.6]
ResourceImpl.java:1: error:Can not found "sun/awt/image/ByteArrayImageSource" [JLS 7.5.2, 7.6]
ResourceImpl.java:1: error:Can not found "sun/awt/image/URLImageSource" [JLS 7.5.2, 7.6]
What possible options are there for this? I guess that the sandbox classes
could be reimplemented sometime using free classes?
So far people at Sun have been able to respond to questions of 'why doesn't
OOo build with a free JDK' with the answer that no-one has really tried in
earnest. I wonder whether there is any chance of getting some of these
reimplmented to not use classes that are not even an official part of the
-------------- next part --------------
