No. GCJ is a part of the unstable series of egcs, and has never been in
a release. I don't believe it's possible to package it without packaging
unstable gcc with it, and g++ and libstdc++ if you want C++
compatibilty. You might want to check it out with the egcs maintainters
<egcs@packages.debian.org> first, as it is stepping into their area, and
they might want to handle it another way or give you advice on how to
handle it.
