While installing a new vm for testing stable I ran into an build error
on sys-lib/db. It was caused by the following chain of events.
1) Follow install documentation.
2) Configure USE="java" and JAVA_PKG_STRICT=1 in make.conf before
(emerge -avutDN world)ing
3) emerge -avutDN world.
4) Watch as sys-lib/db attempts to call class-version-verify.py and then
dies saying that the class version is incorrect.
Most should be able to figure this out via the output  below.
So the question is, do we move the DEPEND on javatoolkit. If so where?
java-utils-2.eclass? or do we update java-pkg_verify-classes() to check
for whether class-version-verify is actually available before attempting
to use it?
grep "javatoolkit" /usr/portage/eclass/*java*.eclass
/usr/portage/eclass/java-ant-2.eclass:# We need some tools from
