Done. Thank you!

Please consider depending on "java-runtime=8" instead of "jre8-openjdk".

That would allow people to use packages like jre8-openjdk-infinality instead of *having* to use jre8-openjdk. :-)

This package is already at revision 3145, and the mkgmap download page [1] lists version 3145 as the current stable release. Thus, I'm not going to update any further than that. If you want the absolute latest release, I'd recommend installing mkgmap-svn [2].

Thanks for the comment! I'm updating three packages: mkgmap, mkgmap-svn and splitter.

Interestingly, namcap warns that java-environment is a dependency. However, I empirically tested out the updated packages by compiling a new map, and everything worked. Thus, namcap's warning appears spurious.

java-environment will install both the java JDK and JRE. JDK is a lot of download =P especially if it's not needed.

I think only the JRE is needed to run mkgmap.

Replacing java-environment with java-runtime as a dependency lightens the load quite a bit.

I've just performed a thorough rewrite of this package with the intent of making it safer (quote variable interpolations), easier to maintain (don't create a shell script from within a shell script -- hard to track escape chars) and cleaner. If anyone experiences any issues, please let me know. I can easily revert to the old format at any time.

Thanks for the heads-up, flow.
