Instructions for building JavaHL

From: Mark Phippard <MarkP_at_softlanding.com>

We are pretty regularly getting our asses kicked over on the Subclipse
mailing list because no one can figure out how to build JavaHL on *nix and
everyone seems to think that JavaHL comes from us.

Is there any way some definitive build instructions could be created, and
perhaps list some gotchas?

Is there any way we could encourage the various package maintainers to
start including JavaHL in their packages?

I am not a *nix programmer, so this isn't something I could create. I
might be able to help maintain it over time as user's on the various lists
report problems. FWIW, I was able to build it on Windows fairly easily,
and while I do not know a lot about *nix, I was able to build it on Linux.
However, it took a lot of trial and error and Google, and I do not really
understand everything I did,

From using Google and my own trials, it does appear that there are a lot of
possible switches and options that can effect the process.

The Subclipse plugin for Eclipse has made a lot of progress as we near our
1.0 release. I would say we are now within shouting distance of the
quality and completeness of TortoiseSVN. It is a shame to have it all
marred for *nix users by this problem.
