I suspect that pushing ZeroMQ binary packages directly into main Linux
distributions repositories is better idea.

I think that enabling SCTP and AMQP is a generally good idea.

Java bindings building and installation procedure looks broken.
Firstly, I need to pass JAVA_HOME to the ./configure-script and,
secondly, necessary class-files are not installed at all. However, I'm
not a java-expert and don't use it personally.

With best regards!
