At a bare minimum, the config file should
certainly point one to the blackdown jdk, version 1.4.x. Unless someone
has a good reason not to do it, I'd encourage you to make the change.
Also (as I learned this weekend), the
comments in the config file for the watson dist. have diverged from the
ones for the generic i686 config. The useful info in the Watson one
should certainly be available in the generic x86 one.

Re: [Jikesrvm-core] Problems with latest
If 1.4 now required (or at least recommended), I think
the the config
files should be changed to refect this. I am happy to do so.
A related point is more generally how to chose the defaults for these
Since I need to use 1.4.1 to use the new linux threads (with RH 9
etc), I use the rpm provided by Sun: j2sdk-1.4.1_03-fcs. This
installs itself in /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.1_03
Currently the config file has /opt/IBMJava2-13 as the default. This
is what I used until the shift to 1.4.1.
