On my Fedora 28, the java tests work fine in both my work copy, and in
a new checkout I tried with.

I use no particular build flags/settings.

Yes, that was my understanding as well.

As I said, unfortunately not for me :-/  The thing that makes me
puzzling about this is that I actually saw this issue in the past, on
a different system (an older version of RHEL 7).  But then, trying
again later on basically the same system did not show me the issue.

As additional data point: so far we did not receive (at least to my
knowledge, of course) reports of the java binding broken because of
this.  Surely this binding is not one of the most used ones, but
still...
