Yes it does.

You do realize that there's absolutely no reason to compile your own 
with a Java application, right?

Just download the compiled version as directed on my previous post:  

However, I now realize you have to find it yourself--doom9 only accepts 
requests with a referrer within their domain and they don't even do it 
right, so you might have to clear some stuff out of your browser for it 
to work if you've already clicked on a direct link (the easiest way is 
to just restart your browser).  Go to http://www.doom9.org/ , click on 
"Download," then search for "ProjectX," then download the zip file that 
contains the binary version (the jar file).
