Dalibor, I think Enrico was specifically asking for Sun's libjvm.so, not
compatibility of class libraries in general. Kaffe provides libkaffevm.so
which should be compatible for public JNI functions. I think there are
some projects choosing between libjvm.so and libkaffevm.so at configure
time to support both... That might work for pljava of PostgreSQL?
