I notice that PDE headless build behaves differently on Win and Linux.
On Linux, I have to specify this in my build.properties:

bootclasspath=${jre}/lib/rt.jar

otherwise it would not find any of java.lang.* classes.

I don't have to do that on Win. Does anyone know if there's something
missing I need to set for Linux? Thanks.

If nothing is set, then the default bootclasspath is going to be
${java.home}/lib/*.jar

Ant provides access to all java system properties, here "java.home" was
expected to be set by your vm. Perhaps your vm on linux isn't setting
this property? (And setting "jre" instead?)
