I've been trying to get hibernate (3.0_rc1 and 3.0.5) to compile cleanly from
sources using the portage provided packages for a week now. And I'm almost able
to submit an ebuild ...but not quite. In the meantime - since activity on the
Hibernate ebuilds is so low and since Hibernate is such a wonderful piece of
software - I'd like to see something like this ebuild in portage. I know binary
packages in portage are frowned upon, but I think it's still better than users
having to download their binaries themselves and clutter up their filesystems
This is my first attempt at an ebuild, so please be kind =)
I've also added an ant build.properties file that disables the annoying splash
shown while running the build.xml script.

files/build.properties - disables splash while building
We are not going to add binary packages to the tree. File a bug about the issues
you have with hibernate if one does not already exist. We do have a couple of
binary packages in the tree but that is either because it is closed source or
for example cyclic dependencies. There should be bugs for converting binary
packages to compile from sources for packages that still need to be converted.
If there aren't, feel free to file new ones.
