Well, you know just when you need it, it comes from a nice place to help
I just found a removable HDD for one of our upcoming projects which has
11.0 running with JDK 1.2.2 (R installed on it :-)

I could plug it in one of our systems during a low traffic time slot and
test all the stuff.

But I still need autoconf/automake support/help/hints because it isn't
installed on that HDD for sure and I've never worked with it before.

You're right, but Corry wants to autoconf the Java-Stuff as well.
