Ok the patch worked fine for building on my F20, which I did as a test,
however it failed the build in rawhide.

The only clue I can get is this:
configure: WARNING: unable to include <jni.h>

however I got the same warning in F20 w/o causing the build to fail.

Here build fails in the sense that the configure script thinks there is
no java available at all and just skips building the jni stuff and then
rpm fails to find the .so and .jar files.

Help ?
