The license page http://www.jacorb.org/lgpl.html indicates it's lgpl, not gpl.

AFAICT this modification to use the jacorb compiler was never used in a release.  I guess
geronimo would be interested in the answer to this question in case we should remove this
bit of build configuration.

IIRC geronimo found all the idlj tools we tried extremely unreliable and getting a usable
set of output classes was rare, so we generated them once (using the sun idlj) and checked
them into svn.
