At this point I'll be happy just to run make and not see errors. Please 
bear with me.

I see JAR files here.  The jar command apparently works much like tar.  
I see a directory structure like a tar list function.  The javac command 
has a -sourcefile option.  The man page says this can be used to allow 
the accessing of JAR file content, like CLASSPATH but it will do JAR 
files as well.

If true then I need to point -sourcefile at the libraries directory 
where the jar files reside?  Yes?

-sourcefile ~/ecj-base/libraries/*.jar

in my case?

Only experience I have with Java is as a SysAdmin having to maintain 
five or six old versions of JDK around.  grumble
