If apple were to donate one to Apache, I am sure that use would be made of
it. Hey, if they were to donate any of those fancy laptops like yours I'm
sure use would be made of them too, especially since my 3 year old pII/300
notebook died from all the excitement of spending the week up in the
spiritual home of windows, and is now a nice LCD with a dead motherboard
attached, and hard disk I need to gain access to, somehow.

do you have a debugger on your PPC? could you, like step into tests to see
why things fail?

most tests call a build file and validate properties and things. Test 21

etc/testcases/taskdefs/available.xml of which the relevant test is

  <target name="test21">
    <available property="test" ignoresystemclasses="true"

so the failure could just be that the runtime is in a different place, and
we need to change the test. Seem likely?

Looks like someone still has to get the hang of running java headless. dont
worry, java1.3 on unix has the same problem in the imaging libs, hence
various batik related issues.
