Thanks,
I'll look at it later this week.

===========================

Sparc people,
  I've looked at Dylan's ebuild.  It does enable sparc support for IcedTea6, it installs
it correctly, and java-config sees it and will correctly enable it.

I am not a java expert.  However, I did test it briefly with the netlogo simulation
program (netlogo-4.0.3, available from third parties) and it can run a few of the demo
models (I have not done an exhaustive check).  This is a *major* step --- we've never
before even able to get this program to load.

Thus, if any of you have been wanting java or need it on sparc, please give the
ebuild icedtea6-bin-1.4.1.ebuild a test.  If it looks good to you, I'll work with the
java people to drop it into the tree.  It's a replacement for the existing ebuild,
and we can easily distribute the sparc-specific parts of the distfiles to the
mirrors.

Dylan, many thanks for all your efforts --- looks like this might be a winner.  Are
you ever on IRC?  If so, I'd like a few minutes of your time.  (Yes, I see that
there are time zone issues.)

Thanks and regards,
Ferris

Regards,
Ferris
