Description Kenneth Porter 2006-01-10 03:17:10 UTC
Instead of hard-coding gcj in the spec file, use the "alternatives" feature. I'm
attaching a patch for the spec file which changes two lines: The path to the
JDK, and the BuildRequires for the JDK version. These reduce the specificity to
allow use of Sun and other Java suppliers.

An additional upstream issue is that the JNI headers are located with a find
command that fails to find all include subdirectories, due to the use of
symbolic links. I've just raised this issue on the subversion-devel mailing list
to get upstream input. I'll append more info on that once the developers respond.

No response at this time.

I've applied the patch to relax the requirements; thanks.
