Previous release series:  GCC 3.3.6 (released 2005-05-03)
    This is the last release from the 3.3.x series; the branch has been
    closed after the release.

It's unlikely that the sarge gcj (actually, libgcj4) package will be
rebuilt just for this, yes.  This is unfortunate, because it means
that there won't be any debian stable java support on 2.6 arm kernels
until etch comes out in December 2006, but that's the way things are,
I guess..

You can of course always rebuild gcc-3.3-3.3.5 yourself..
