The reason I had NO_PACKAGE in there was because "all copies of the
software, packaging, and documentation" must contain this COPYRIGHT
notice. The terms were a little unclear, so I thought I'd be cautious.

It is the same class library, but netscape requires it to be uncompressed.

I don't think so, netscape requires the library to be uncompressed, and
kaffe uses the .zip-- Also we both install /usr/local/bin/javac which
would seem to make the two packages mutually exclusive. The only reason I
made this port is that kaffe isn't quite as stable as Netscape's Java yet.
