Where did you come up with those steps? I have never seen some of those
Usually you just do configure followed by make, and then make install.
However, you have missed some steps.
For example, to build JavaHL you have to explicitly do this. JavaHL is
not built or installed as part of the standard make steps:
In some cases, you will also have to pass some switches to configure to
tell it where Java is located. If you Google on "building JavaHL" you
will find some posts with references to that.
All that being said, Ben Reser is the maintainer of the Mandrake packages,
I would check to see if he doesn't just have a Subversion package for
Mandrake that includes JavaHL. If he doesn't, then perhaps he could be
persuaded to start including it in his packages for Mandrake.
