    #jarfile=`kpsewhich -progname=java -format='other binary files' pp4p.jar`
    jarfile=`kpsewhich -progname=scripts -format='other binary files' pp4p.jar`

1) I see that -progname=scripts works, but it seems strange.  How about
   this, which also finds the jar file:
kpsewhich -format=texmfscripts pp4p.jar

2) Please, someone, report the problem and potential fixes to the
   ppower4 author.

3) I updated TL with the change above.

4) There's another problem, which is GNU Java (gij) does not understand
   -jar.  Instead the idea is apparently to set CLASSPATH and call just
   `java foo.jar' or something like that.  Sigh.
