I don't know that the question as worded has an answer. However
whenever you start an app, and it stops dead because it's missing a
library, it tells you. Also, every app has its dependencies listed on
the blaswave.org web site. The major lib file lost was libjpeg;
libjepeg, which it only took me a day to trace down using the above
methods, is installed by the package jpeg.

I still don't have java working. What I suspect is going on, is that
since I'm using Java on a Sparc 10 the Sun updates install the 32 bit
java. I believe that since I couldn't get any of this working until I
installed 64 bit compatibility I need to install the 64 bit java or
something that will bridge 64 bit and 32 bit Java. Oh well,
