      Description

      On the latest ubuntu (and other systems) several packages need to be installed to successfully compile JikesRVM.

      The current quick start guide (http://www.jikesrvm.org/UserGuide/QuickStartGuide/index.html) reads:

      apt−get install git ant gcc g++ gcc−multilib g++−multilib
      

      I would change this to:

      apt-get install git ant gcc g++ gcc-multilib g++-multilib bison automake gettext libtool
      

      (Note also the dashes converted to hyphens)

      Additionally, the buildit config gives the wrong value for JAVA_HOME on ubuntu, producing errors for someone following the quick start guide. The guide should mention that bin/builtit.base_config needs to be modified to set JAVA_HOME to the correct value (/usr/lib/jvm/default-java)
