I've finally cleaned things up and the attached patch works (for me) on
Linux. gen_base.py now has one TargetJava class (based mainly on the
old TargetJavaHeaders), which describes how to generate the .class and
optionally .h files.

Since javac only produces header files when the .java file has native
code, build.conf now lists all such files in a "native" attribute to
avoid unsatisfiable dependencies.

I know there is still work to be done for Windows, and I'll need some
help with that. As I mentioned above, multiple files are generated per
javac command, which our current ezt templates for VisualStudio don't
seem to support. From some brief searching, the solution files do
appear to handle this, but it's not something I can readily test.

I haven't committed to trunk since I didn't want to break the Windows
builds. I'm open to suggestions on how to move forward.

Cheers,
