The method getMousePosition() is undefined for the type Component
So.. how much better is it to avoid it? Do I have to patch the whole
program to not use that function (I don't know if I can do it), or
should I just go for icedtea?
Ah, okay, this is a method that is new since Java 1.5.
While we can make your package depend on IcedTea if there is
absolutely no way to avoid doing so, it would be better either to fix
libgcj or to fix your program so as to avoid getMousePosition().
Fixing libgcj looks pretty trivial: Component.getMousePosition()
simply calls MouseInfo.getPointerInfo() and adjusts the info relative
to the co-ordinates of its own window.
Calling Classpath AWT mainatainers: can anyone catch this?
