Out of interest, did you get it to work?
With some seriously ugly hacks i got it to compile and run, of course
still a lot of bugs but when it would be a real community project (no
copyright assignments, and no CC-non-commercial license) I think it can
be made to work with gcj. But i gave up since it became clear there is
no open-xchange developer community, just people that do gratis work for
the open-xchange authors.
There are still some experimental rpms on my website, which i should
remove, since the versions >= 0.8.0 and < 0.8.2 are _not_ open source,
the HTML files are all proprietary and have no license.
