Subject: java.eclass needs to RDEPEND on java-config
Date: Thu, 12 Jan 2006 19:13:53 -0500
For bug 118651 [1], the user was experiencing problems with binary 
packages because java-config is in DEPEND, not RDEPEND, which wouldn't 
be brought in as a dependency for a binary install.

The user had suggested putting this in the particular ebuild's RDEPEND. 
However, this would affect all JDKs and JREs. So instead, I propose 
putting java-config in DEPEND and RDEPEND of java.eclass, which all JDKs 
and JREs should be inheriting. The ebuilds would then need to be updated 
to not DEPEND on java-config.

Would there be any problem with doing this? If not, is there a minimal 
version of java-config that should be used? sun-jdk depends on >= 1.2, 
ibm-jdk-bin depends on >= 0.2.5, and blackdown-jdk depends on >= 1.2.11, 
so I'm not sure which one should be used.
