java-1.5-fixer actually is installed now to /usr/bin/java-1.5-fixer. As for the problem you're having, it says in the documentation that if you were using 1.5 as a system vm, you will need to run java-1.5-fixer in order to get your system in tip-top-shape. Unfortunately, the script isn't flawless, as I previously mentioned on the list [1]. In particular, if something that depends is used by ant is compiled with 1.5, the script will choke up on it. The workaround is to try to figure out what classes are still compiled with 1.5, unmerge them all, then remerge them.
