+ $(JAVA) -Djava.library.path=subversion/bindings/java/javahl/native/.libs:$(libdir) -classpath

>From conversations I've had on IRC (about the same problem as it applies
to the swig bindings), I don't think this approach will work on all
platforms and/or with all versions of libtool. One is not really
supposed to know about libtool's .libs subdir, and attempting to link
against libraries located there without going through libtool is not
guaranteed to work.

On the other hand, since there's no way to do this right within the
libtool context, perhaps doing it the wrong way and letting it work
where it works and fail where it fails is the best answer. Anyone else
have opinions on the matter?
