Since the Java files are platform independent, the GNU file system
standard would prefer Java files to be installed under $(prefix)/share/.

If we stick with lib/, we should probably be creating a lib/postgresql
subdirectory, like we do in the other subtrees.

Some other thoughts:

Shouldn't the interfaces/jdbc/Makfile be using interfaces/jdbc/build.xml
rather than the one on top?  Is the one on top still needed?

In PGAC_PROG_ANT, it might be worth running the found program to see if it
actually works.  (On a vanilla Linux installation with Kaffe it probably
won't unless the user manually configured the class path.)

If I find some time I'm going to look if I can implement uninstall and
building outside the source tree for the jdbc subtree.
