These packages are nearly ready to go - there's some technical reason why
the jffi (aka jnr-jffi) package doesn't quite work and it's a dependency
for everything else.  I've also been working on an update to version 1.0
for the yecht package but it has some native JAR weirdness going on that I
don't understand.

I haven't looked at anything else, so if you want to get started there's
plenty of places that need work.

Yup.  It's a big project as the build system and dependencies have change
considerably since the 1.5 packages were made.
