Well, all the gcj packages obviously require libgcj. These are:
The ecj package is a gcj-accelerated version of javac:
kawa is a gcj-based LISP implementation:
sinjdoc is a gij-based version of javadoc:
OpenJDK, while technically correct, is not really fast enough to use on most
non-x86 systems. We are working as fast as we can to get OpenJDK JIT-compiling
working on PPC systems.
