Yeah, I haven't done all my "due diligence" -- I haven't tried flymake
and I haven't tried JDEE.  Auto-building is just one feature among
many, though.  Even JDEE, AFAICT, only provides a subset of what
Eclipse does.

Note that jikes is quite far behind the times, Java-wise.  I don't
know anybody who uses it any more, because it does not support Java 5.
Retrofitting this is a major task and, I think, pointless -- there are
already 2 free, compliant Java compilers.  I think we dropped jikes
from Fedora due to obsolescence.
