Hmm... I'm not a Mac OS X wonk... sorry. I figured ldd was standard *NIX

Yeah, libjvm.dylib is likely to be /the/ JVM, while libjvm_compat.dylib
is likely to be a smaller compatibility library for certain features. A
quick Google search seems to indicate that libjvm_compat.dylib is
related to JDK 1.4 which should have been replaced long ago. That's why
I suggested a non-sane (insane?) Java installation. Does OS X offer any
way to "reinstall" a system package like this?

Unless someone on the list has specific experience with this, I'd
suggest asking on the commons user list (where jsvc questions might
better be answered) or on an OS-X-specific Java list. Sorry :(
