This is done by intent, so you are able to run java apps without
graphical ui's on machines which don't have gtk and X installed.

What is missing (and fixed and gcc svn) is a missing recommends on
libgcj7-awt in the libgcj7-0 or gij-4.1 packages (however gij already
recommends libgcj7-awt).

yes, maybe we should introduce a new virtual package
java-runtime-with-ui, which is provided by the packages above.
