 Well, these packages should not be in the distribution, all theses classes
 has been moved. You don't need to compile these classes. You should use the
 makefiles, only the packages written in the makefiles has to be compiled.

 Actually, JDK1.2 is still a beta, and we have some problems with inner class
 access (private access to inner classe seems to be forbidden now!), we have
 also some problems with cast (byte -> int) that MUST be specified now, ...
 new ClassLoader api ... new servlets api ...

 So Jigsaw1.2 is not ready for JDK1.2 (or is it JDK1.2 that is not ready?).

 Benoit.
