OpenBSD on i386 used a.out in versions 3.3 and earlier.  But the person
who started this thread is using 3.4, which is ELF-based on i386.
This removes most if not all of the libtool weirdness.

I'd suggest using kaffe for running the java bytecode, and jikes for
compiling it, assuming he can get jikes working properly.  (When I was
running Freenet on Kaffe on OpenBSD, I was either using pre-built Freenet
.jar files, or building them with jikes on Linux.  I stopped for multiple
reasons, the first of which was the extensive use of non-blocking I/O
in Freenet, which Kaffe didn't support at the time.  Not sure what its
status is at the moment.)
