Ah. But if FreeBSD doesn't have a very good JVM (as I've seen you remark on
before :-), then FreeBSD people will probably not be installing JServ all
Conversely, if there was a great JVM and people wanted to use it, then you
might hear more complaints about the GNU make requirement. :-)
And isn't JServ being replaced by Tomcat anyways, which would reduce the
number of people wanting to install it?
