eternally to check maximum length of command line arguments. This is a
bug of autoconf, and current workaround is to be patient (drinking coffe
or going to bed) or use 'bash' rather than 'sh' distributed with the os.

+ Also note that running configure with -C will cache most reaults and help
+ reconfiguring on old machines)
+* on some platforms GNU make may mysteriously fail when building java classes
+ from rt.jar. The reason is a too restrticted shell limit as probably make tries
+ to open too many file descriptors. Unlimit your shell (unlimit/limit in csh and
+ ulimit in bash). Known to be affected are darwin 5.x and 6.x standard limits.
+* on some platforms when the user has already spawned many processes "make check"
+ may fail due to insufficient system resources. Good ways to work this around
+ are stopping unneded processes, restarting the computer, logging out and in
+ again or once again unlimit your shell limits to the maximum allowed.
+ In case of problems try a combination of the above, unlimiting with a fresh and
+ idle system.
