First of all, there is no need to go to such lengths removing gcj afterwards.
It's not going to hurt to leave it on.

Also, the build depends on jdk >= 1.5 already, so CACAO or JamVM would
do the job fine.  But you'd have similar bootstrap issues, because these
require GNU Classpath and that requires ecj, etc.

Building a Java environment can be a nightmare to be honest :)
I guess the only non-GCJ way would be to use Jikes, then an older Classpath
to get ecj working, then build the new ones.
