Don't forget to have archivers/fastjar supply an alternative for "jar", as
well as have devel/jikes supply an alternaiove for "javac".
Note that jikes is a little special in that it needs a -bootclasspath
argument in order to get access to a set of Java classes. See what I put
into the example java-wrapper.conf, and make particular note of how it has
to use a shell construct to build the -bootclasspath arg. Because it's
dependent on using some other JVM's classes, it may be necessary to comment
out its alternative[*] by default and require hand editing to specify the
desired JVM's classes.
[*] Does the alternatives system support commenting out things? If not, it
should, for reasons such as this.
