openjdk uses the `free' utility to set the -Xmx parameter; if `free' cannot be
found, a minimum value of 384MB is assumed, which apparently is too small for
amd64 and results in miscompilation (which I see in crashes in swing
applications and the webplugin).
- please apply the patch for icedtea.
- please document the use of `free' in openjdk, document the need of
the `procps' package as a build dependency for building openjdk on
* configure.ac: Check for free.
* configure: Regenerate.

dnl OpenJDK's README-builds.html lists gawk as a build dependency so we
dnl check for it explicitly rather than using AC_PROG_AWK.
