This happened some while ago - but I am actually not sure whether
libreoffice-gcj actually worked in the last months.
The .jar.sos get built from .jars which get build wit gcj *but not shipped*.
They would be in -common but that contains the jars built by openjdk from the
When I read http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcj/Invoking-gcj_002ddbtool.html I
read ^ibgcj can use these databases to find a shared library corresponding to the bytecode representation of a class.".
That "corresponding to the bytecode representation" worries me.
Does that mean that the .jar.sos as been there didn't work as gcj/openjdk
probably have fine differences? And so Either we need to
- compile the jar.sos against -java-commons jars (b-d on itself on kbsd-*)
- move the jars somewhere which can differ between openjdk and gcj archs
- forget libreoffice-gcj
doko, debian-java? Any hints?
