I just don't get it. You're not the first person to say they've had
trouble with the JDK. Me, it builds every time without fail. I'm
using a recently built JDK-6u2 right now without issues.

Not to be s schmuck, but do you guys use the book's instructions to
build the JDK? If so, what is the issue? I just don't see it
(notwithstanding the recent discovery about friend-injection only
available in GCC-4.1.x).
