I don't know your internals very well.

1°  It is  not  acceptable that  a  Debian package  require an  internet
   connection to be build (they are all built from source and have to be
   built by  anyone who respect  the dependencies!).  It must  depend on
   other  packages  and  when  installed,  it  has  to  compile  without
   problem. So impossible to go to ibiblio!

2° I got some troubles with  my jdk (j2sdk 1.3 from Blackdown[1]) if the
   directory 'lib' is  in the classpath but does  not exist. Maybe there
   is a work around. 

3° I have  to define the classpath by hand whereas  there is a directory
   containing all the installed jars[2]. 

Thanks for your help,
