Re: [PATCH] merge java/test.html into install.texi and sourcebuild.texi

Thanks for doing this.

Recently I also added the ability to do this without setting an
environment variable.  If the libgcj test suite finds the mauve tree
in gcc/libjava/testsuite/libjava.mauve/mauve, then it will use it
automatically.  (This is more convenient sometimes, since you can just
do another checkout and use the normal test procedure.)

I added this recently too.

Currently the only way to run Jacks is to have the jacks source tree
in gcc/libjava/testsuite/libjava.jacks/jacks.

If you don't mind, please add this information to your patch.
If you'd rather, I can write a patch to update the docs after your
patch goes in.
