are you looking for a java compiler or a jvm?

jikes in debian supports hppa (or at least is compiled for it). kaffe
also has upstream patches for preliminary hppa support, but it's far
from complete, and the debian package doesn't yet have the hppa patches.

as for libffi... i thought someone (carlos?) had looked at it at some
point... not sure what's happening there tho.
