Java Support?

Do you remember how much space it took you for your compilation?  The build
instructions say 1Gig!  And they talk about Motif?  I've got no X support
here, so cannot imagine the need for motif, and I don't want/plan to install
it just so I can compile the SDK.  Did you download/install the tarball or
the i386 binary?  (ie: the "Linux Red Hat RPM shell script" or the "Linux
GNUZIP Tar shell script")

Did you not have any problems with an error message complaining about the  ie: "error opening shared library error while
loading shared libraries: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory"?

Where did you get the info for the req. paths?  I've been looking for the
documentation, and I find it attrocious!  I can't find the necessary install
instructions in the package anywhere - there's no INSTALL or README that
explains the compilation/installation procedure.

Thanks for the info!
