Per> Where is this documented?

It isn't.  It also isn't a requirement or anything.  I just think
Jacks is useful, and in the past I've fixed a couple bugs that Jacks
pointed out (this was before the number of failures for gcj was as
overwhelming as it is now).

Done.

Per> * how to configure it to use a build gcj tree

Per> * how to interpret the results

I found this:

   http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/opensource/cvs/jikes/~checkout~/jacks/jacks.html

I doubt it is the real home page, but it works.
