Oh dear, that is just so underwhelming.. Also there doesn't seem to be a 
standard autoconf macro for detecting the presense of gcj, and maybe giving 
gij an alias of java, and gcj and alias of javac. That would make it easy to 
replace the Sun jdk tools with Free Software gcj for building the java Qt/KDE
