Subject: [gentoo-java] GCJ with IcedTea classpath?

Hi,

if I'm understanding correctly, GCJ >= 4.3 is a fully compatible Java-VM
and Java-Compiler. But the drawback is the incomplete GNU.org classpath.
On the other hand the OpenJDK classpath is incomplete due to proprietary
code, too.

Because of that Redhat added packages of the GNU.org classpath to OpenJDK
and called it IcedTea.

So the question came to my mind whether it is possible to get a fully
compatible JVM and native code compiler by combining GCJ with the IcedTea
classpath?

Thanx for any hint ...
