If I read the original build.xml correctly, this was never part of a
regular build, but had to be built explicitly. I wonder if it actually
worked even before gbuildification. And how many people knew about it...
Since nobody has protested about it during the past 3 years, I think we
can safely assume it is dead.

Btw, it is the whole scripting/java/org dir that is dead, not just the
idesupport subdir of it.
