Yup - I've posted my patch to list before and you cast an eye on it and it
seemed sane.

Hmm, pretty sure got that far too.

IIRC I got splash and stuff working correctly then barfing on various runtime
linking issues.  This could be me, and I'm not overly familiar with how
gcj/eclipse deals with hybrid .so/java stuff.

It strikes me that it should be at least something that should go into Fedora
Extras for FC2 eventually.  I'll rebuild and log and try and poke people here -
I've had a lot of out of channel intrest from people via jpackage and other
forums for native eclipse so I would personally like to see it in fedora once
all the pain is gone.
