Try `make clean' first.

Yes.  Build directory files mentioned in java_source_files will not be
found by gcj, and therefore won't be compiled.

The AWT code is just stubs.  It isn't ready to be built and so isn't
mentioned in any rule.  It was checked in because it is easier to keep
track of it in the cvs repo than in some random source tree.

Not right now.

Arvind> Isn't there a danger of exceeding the argument number limit?


And not only that, but the current build method isn't very reliable.
There are cases where it seems like it ought to work, but it will not.

I'll fix this "someday".
