Would it be acceptable to backport gcj4?
There was a post on this list recently, pointing at DCCA-specific
issues (build environment change due to a new libggc1), but I don't
think that's a problem for bpo.
I had tried to recompile it a few months ago, but it made OOo crash -
so maybe you mean there are technical issues?
