I've just a few minutes ago compiled and installed OpenJade 1.3.2
It was two-stage process:
1. configure, compile and install OpenSP
2. configure, compile and install OpenJade
Both got --prefix=/usr/local/openjade-1.3.2; after installing OpenSP I've
symlinked it's include/OpenSP directory to /usr/local/include/OpenSP
It worked.

This one I've found on the net (in the old version, for 1.3). Patching
1.3.2 resulted in two rejects (in config/ and
style/jade_version.h) --- both because of changed version number --- the
patch expected version 1.3 from 1999 etc.). After this brutal treatment
1.3.2 compiled. (I've not tested it yet).


So, "a chance-meeting, as we say in Middle-Earth" :)
