I found the same compile problems as Butch Landingin. However I was able
to successfully compile and run the previous jigsaw 2.0beta2 with
JDK1.2beta4 and JSDK2.0 (also JAVA_COMPILER=NONE)

Just one compile error in an unused test program (see attached err.rpt).
I used my own build system rather than the supplied Makefiles and this
rejected many unused source files (see attached rejects.rpt).

There are many cyclic dependencies between classes, even cross package
This might cause subtle problems if you do not delete all class files
before building.
These cycles could be broken by more use of interfaces. (see attached

The result runs OK for my purposes. Jigsaw is reasonably happy but throws
IndexOutOfBounds exceptions in HttpParser.parseInt() on some sites due to
failure to keep the ParseState consistent with the byte buffer lengths.

Jigadm is happy provided you stretch its windows  to aid layout (best with
1024 pixel screen). There is a intermittent bug adding and removing
filters to the Proxy properties and I had to manually edit a property file
to get it to remember. I may have been making errors with
commit/checkpoint/save and tried many combinations.

These might be fixed in 2.0b3 but with all the compile errors I haven't
