It takes a lot of resources (disk, time rebuilding, unused components).
So there is a reason to keep system as small as possible.

So gcj is the best alternative. But what happens if gcc stops
providing this in favor of OpenJDK?

I guess I am asking that icedtea6 does not have such boostrap in package...
If it does not provide this, users should have a simple way to
bootstrap it in Gentoo... Providing a simple script is sufficient.
