Ah, two questions then:

How is it included?  startup.sh does not refer to it.  The only 
place I see javac.jar mentioned is in bootstrap.bat.

How can the javac.jar built for JDK 1.2 work on a JDK 1.1.x system?

(I can't test for myself on my IRIX machine because, curiously enough,
the JDK 1.1 sun.tools.javac.Main class is in the default system
classpath of the "java" program itself.)

P.S.  I dropped this thread off the general list.
