Huh? I meant that they won't notice the make requirement if they never even
try to install JServ (since they don't have a good JVM on the platform to
use with JServ).
I mean... duh :-) I know make != JVM. *snicker*

Oh, quite true. But let us say that people are starting from scratch.
They've got neither JServ nor Tomcat. So they pick one. Don't they usually
pick Tomcat? Or let's say they pick JServ, smack the make requirement and
move on to Tomcat without sending in a complain about the make req't.
Of course, if they *already* have JServ, then they already have GNU make
