This problem is still very much present for me.  I have done nothing
special either on the Linux side or the Windows side.  On the Linux side, I
have Java installed and when I run the MXE cross-build it succeeds.  On the
Windows side I have Windows XP and I just downloaded the standard package
from Oracle which gives me Java 7 Update 45 (probably just a JRE).  I get a
segfault every time when using any Java command.

It seems to me that we may need to be more careful in configure.ac about
distinguishing between $build_os and $host_os.  We require a Java
environment on the $build_os in order to produce .class and .jar files that
are a part of Octave.  We require a jvm on the $host_os in order to run
things, but we can't test that in a cross-compiling situation and should
just assume "yes".

For any Java experts, is it possible that the problem is architecture
related (32-bit vs. 64-bit).  My build platform is x86_64  Linux, but
Windows XP Home Edition is 32 bit.
