Presently if a program "java" appears in the $PATH the
user is forced to compile in Java support. In my case I
don't need/want it, but at the same time there is a "java"
in my $PATH.
[ellson] It just uses swig to generate wrappers that can be used by a java program. It doesn't add anything to the dot (neato, etc.) executable itself, and it doesn't use the java compiler AFAIK.
Is this actually failing on your platform, or are you just concerned about performance?
