Just curious more then anything.. why is there no java on ppc?
Because Red Hat shipped it in 5.3 but only i386 and x86_64 this is beacuse
they are the only RHEL arches with a native jit the only other arches with it
are sparcv9 and sparc64. the support for ppc/s390/s390x/arm/ia64 etc is using
zero which is not native and is slower. but we could ship ppc java in EPEL,
we removed java-1.6.0-openjdk after it was shipped in RHEL. AFAIK Red Hat
doesnt ship the plugin which we could ship also. it would take careful
packaging to do. but as far as java goes we could just ExclusiveArch ppc it
and build it for our needs.
