 Replying to [comment:1 dj@…]:
 > I cannot work on them any longer due to licensing restrictions with Sun
 regarding OpenJDK.  It might be nice to transfer the old source build
 instructions to the wiki from an old revision and link there, noting that
 the patches might need a little massaging.  Would be nicer to put the
 source build back into the book, but trust me, I do understand how much of
 a pain that is, and I simply cannot do it now, or it would have been done
 (or in queue).
 Well, there's always IcedTea for your consumption:


 It replaces the binary plugs with free software versions of them.
