This was a bad idea when it came about, but it now actively breaks Java on any platform which doesn't have rt.jar in /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/lib. Which soon will be all of them (with JDK 7), but it has been for a long time the case on Fedora/RHEL.

a) so, will you pull this in?
b) is there any life in narwhal yet? Seems like the last commit was last year.

Tom gave the go-ahead. It was at one time a necessary hack to get around a bad bundled js.jar. Hopefully this doesn't hurt too much.
