Thanks for the report Robert. What version of J2SDK?

Anything other than the new 1.5 (5.0) is what we have now. The
new version compiles just fine with GCC-3.4.3, but I know that
FOP for one, and I believe OpenOffice won't compile with the new

I'm going to try to work out the FOP issues, as it may be some
time before a new version is released. OpenOffice probably will
contain fixes for the JDK-1.5 sometime soon.

So, we could update BLFS to the new JDK and just put notes in
the FOP and OpenOffice instructions that the 1.4.2 version of
the JDK is required.

I believe DJ is miles ahead of me on the JDK stuff, but I have been
using the JDK-1.5 for some time now and haven't encountered any
