What I did just to get around this for now was download the binary rpm from
Sun, install it and make the /usr/bun/java link to it.

I was then able to start Azureus and take advantage of the memory leak fixes
and improved memory usage.

It would be good however to see this eventually in rpmforge as I find it more
distribution specific, but we all can understand how busy it must be for the
maintainers and with time consuming things like this one it may be any help we
can provide the better.

Regards,

Michael.
