The script mostly works though it's usually used to go the other way while
preparing rxtx 2.0 for release. If you noticed the exception error you
saw was a / instead of a . in the exception..
javax.comm/PortInUseException as I recall.
So its not perfect but that will not be the cause of the error you saw.
