OpenOffice and db-4.4.x

Hi guys. Sorry for the silence lately. OOo build time. I'm putting in
a warning against using the system installed db-4.4 unless anyone has an
idea as to how to make the OOo build play nicely with db.jar from
db-4.4. I keep getting segfaults in the java compiler (segfaults
because of processes killed by OOM with 512MB memory and about 3GB of
swap). I've fiddled with it for five evenings. I've poked and prodded
everywhere I know to look, but I can't seem to get a fix for this one.
There is an experimental (ark) patch that uses the system libxslt
instead of xalan (supposedly resolving the segfault by not caching
xalan), but seems a little too drastic a change for the book. Otherwise
OOo-2.0.2 is good, and works well with the internal build of db-4.2.
I'm updating the book shortly. If anyone has any ideas or pointers
about a system db-4.4 and xmlhelp, please speak up.
