I was hoping that gdj was another subset of gcc; I have seen something about
java in the source of later gcc.  Though I have built gcc on many UNIX boxes I
have not succeeded on Hurd yet.

OK.   Will have a good look at what the java and C++ does.  Will also find out
what this gcj is; (the build does  javac=gcj.  Will report back this weekend

Many thanks
