Thanks Andi, you are correct that those mentioned libraries come up as not supported.

How did you configure the build ?
Unless the patches mentioned earlier were applied or part of the tarball, it 
should list libjava, boehm-gc and libffi as not supported during configure.

How about 'make install' ?

The installed modules endup wherever you chose during the configure step with 
the --prefix arg.
