Confirmed. And I would have updated the book *long* ago, except that
I can't get anyone to confirm that the multibyte issue is, or is not
an issue any longer.

BTW, it appears I won't have to install tcsh any longer as I only did
it for JDK builds, and today I built JDK-6u2 and it requires ksh. I
used your patches in the repo DJ, however, one isn't required any

There are additional patches/seds needs as well.

1. vectornode.hpp file fix
2. gcc.make file fix

Also, changing all the ksh's to bash's seem to work, but I built again,
using ksh just to do it right.
