The java-1.4.2-gcj-compat rpm more-or-less ``correctly'' provides
jaxp_parser_impl since the necessary classes are in rt.jar, so
xerces-j2 isn't needed. However, in practice whenever I tried to
build or run packages with the GNU jaxp or transform
implementations, it would fail.
Why did it fail? Both ant and eclipse use libgcj's XML code and work
fine with it, so I'm guessing it's pretty decent.
