Just so you know what you're up against: IIRC this package has quite a
few issues with recent C++ compilers.

Meanwhile, upstream has switched to Java in 5.0.0, and I tried to build
it with the GNU Java stack a long time ago, but that effort failed for
some reason that I no longer remember.

IMO the most productive approach would be to try upgrading to 5.0.0
again, but that practically means a complete specfile rewrite so it
might not be a bad idea to submit the result for review as if it were a
new package.  I don't think doing so is mandatory though.
