Title: configure option to compile w/ no Java
Submitter: John Hinsdale
Date: Mon Apr 4 12:43:11 2005
Subsys: Build/Installation
Version: CVS 2.3.2
System: *-*-
Severity: minor
Problem:
It would be nice if ./configure had an option like --without-java to disable compilation against a Java environment for those who don't want Java compiled in.

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.
Comments:
[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?
