But isn't it possible to make it user selectable like the original
OO-installer does? Or just put the Java-things into another package
which is not installed by default an gives a warning that it needs an
installed JVM or somthing like this. I understand that it isn't possible
to have a JVM in fedora but I think many people are interested in the
java-facilities of OO me included.

But doesn't the original-installer allow you to enable the Java-Support
at installation-time and not at compiletime?

How long does it take and how much diskspace am I needing to build an OO
that way?
