I vaguely remember adding it. I was building on the university's Solaris 9
machines at the time. They've long since replaced them with GNU/Linux machines
and I've been at Red Hat for over five years, so those days are long gone :)

I have some Freetype fixes to push to Classpath as well, so I'll fix this too
and look at merging to gcj in the not-too-distant future. I think it's long
overdue. Ideally, the change should be left out of this patch, so as to avoid
