Some further progress information:

It seems that the Java JDK 1.5.0 requires quite a few changes before it 
agrees to build. The JRL package seems not to include all files required
to compile Java. These have to be loaned from the jdk1.5.0 distribution. 

I will try to make a proper list of all changes I have to make to get
java compile cleanly.
