And, of course, forgot:

dev-java/ant-owanttask dev-java/asm dev-java/jarjar
dev-java/hamcrest-core dev-java/junit dev-java/java-getopt
dev-java/qdox dev-java/regexp dev-java/ant-trax dev-java/ant-junit

But so far, all good!  haven't seen any strange java errors crop up.

and, nice to know that these other packages work with just the
~sparc[64]  flag added.

No real hard-core testing, other than just the big ebuild dependancy
chain for ant.
