        #include <sys/dir.h>            /* for struct DIR and */

Unfortunately, I don't think it is a good idea to compile the Java  
front-end with -D_POSIX_SOURCE - I've had bad experience with that  
in the past; it was well known on* that POSIX support  
in NEXTSTEP3 basically didn't work.

Well, that means that I'll leave the Java frontend out of the loop  
for now - knowing nothing about Java would have made my contribution  
in testing it rather insignificant anyhow ...
