Re: Instructions for building JavaHL

Hi Mark,
i am the author of the javahl binding. But not the author of the
integration into the main bilding system.
If you want to build the javahl binding on the 1.1.* branch on *nix
system, it is not so complicated anymore.

First run ./configure --enable-javahl [--with-jdk=...] [--with-junit=...]
plus your usual options. The with-jdk option is needed, when JAVA_HOME
does not point to your jdk directory. The with-junit option is need when
you want to run the tests and should point to the junit jar.
Then run
make
make javahl
make install
make install-javahl
[make check-javahl]
That should give you a usable javahl binding.

I know that SuSE has rpm's available with javahl included. Gentoo should
build javahl by default and there are fink packages for MacOS.
