Heh. This borks the 'javahl' build on Mac OS X for me. Here I was
thinking I never finished a corner case, but then I hunted through java.m4
and saw this jikes stuff going, 'Gee, I didn't write this!' - sure enough
'--without-jikes' fixes it for me.

In short, jikes isn't smart enough to find the classes by itself, and the
JAVA_CLASSPATH detection code isn't clever enough on Mac OS X. I don't
know how to programmatically find the classes.jar that jikes need (it's in
'/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Classes/classes.jar' here on
my box). The default javac doesn't need to be told the classes.jar path,
so that's better, I think.

So, I think we should flip the default to not using jikes - at least on Mac

What do you think? -- justin
