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.
