Also be aware that on systems without Sun Java, there's also a "javac" that
calls gcj's compiler; hence, "javac" does not mean Sun Java.
Moreover, I thought the goal of the whole exercise was to get the
xrpcwrapper compiled with both, Sun Java and gcj, right?
Hence, what is/was the reason to (try to) force the use of "javac"?
