I have successfully emerged the following packages:
>From my perspective these could even be marked stable for ppc since I
have run the jar files from these distributions for quite some time
without any problems. I'm using dev-java/ibm-jdk-bin-1.4.1-r2.
There is however one minor issue with the ebuilds: both rdepend on
dev-java/saxon and dev-java/xerces. This is not stricly necessary
since the jing and trang distributions are pretty much self contained
(jing provides the respective jars while trang doesn't really need
them) at least under java 1.4 (which is also recommended by the
author). I'd prefer to make the ebuilds depend on virtual/jdk-1.4 and
get rid of the other dependencies, especially since the ibm-jdk is the
only one usable on ppc.
