Hmm... I would like to have a look at Solaris and downloaded it (Intel-based
Solaris8), buw had no success to find a video-driver for my Diamond Viper
550 :-( So no, I don't use it now.

Regarding makefile generation? Ant will do it's best to ignore them :-)

Ok, than using jikes will not help you either. Maybe you should build the
examples on it's own and ignore errors in them (failonerror="false"), but
personally I won't like a production build with any error at all. If I had
examples that don't compile I would deliver them as source only maybe.
