Here is my guess:
`jexec` only works with openjdk installed. At one point debian had
multiple java implementation (sun, kaffe...). These days only two
really remains, so maybe an easier solution would be to have a
`gcj-exec` provided by `gcj-jdk` to mimic openjdk package. Which means
it would be much easier to handle the LD_LIBRARY_PATH issue within the
`gcj-exec` executable.

jarwrapper is only really needed with a custom jre installation...
