Earlier this summer I was able to compile VisAD without Java3D,
and the README says this is OK.
We just downloaded a fresh copy on Monday, and it gives hundreds
of errors complaining about missing classes.
When we run the spreadsheet, it crashes because it wants Java3D.
So the question is: how do I compile and use VisAD without Java3D.
(I need to omit j3d for several reasons:
1. It's not available for many platforms
2. It is impossibly slow without graphics cards
3. It cannot be used in a remote X-windows session, only on
the local console.)
