This is application badness.  Ideally they wouldn't be using this class
directly.  If rewriting this code isn't an option, have a look at
gnu.gcj.protocol.file.Handler to see if it will do the job.

Check out rhug for autotooled gcj enabled rhino.  There's even an RPM
spec file.  http://sources.redhat.com/rhug

Just FYI, however, I expect rhug will go away when we all start using
GCC 4, since building and running java apps/libraries with GCC 4 will be
much easier.
