	The linux version *almost* works on my -current box.  It'd be
really cool to have an official distribution, though.  :)

	I'm fairly disappointed with jdk, however.  If it's supposed to be
so great and ``write once, run everywhere,'' and all that, why don't they
make a version of jdk that you can actually *build*?  The jdk 1.2
distribution lists jdk 1.2 as a requirement (in addition to Solaris and
Windows).  What's up with that?
