The existing java support in Automake is (with the JAVA primary) is
botched and hardly usable, so I'd rather declare it frozen and spend
no more time on it.  The right direction for a better Java support
in automake is likely to implement the proposed new JARS primary:

The attached patch enhances the manual to make it clear that the
JAVA primary support is to be considered frozen, and will not even
receive bug fixes.

Unfortunately, I will have no time to attempt that implementation
myself in the foreseeable future, but I sill hope someone else will
find the time and motivation to give it a shot.

Anyway, I'm closing the bugs referring to the old JAVA primary as
"Will not fix", to try to reduce the clutter in the Automake bug
