Jep, they are using a modified Version[1]. The main difference seems to be  
the use of StringBuffer() instead of StringBuilder(). After changing two  
constructors (S_verb_form, S_noun_form) to StringBuffer() the latin  
stemmer compiles happily. I guess I have to proceed with the *real*  
integration now :)

Thnx for the fast help!
