It was my understanding from the Debian Java policy
(http://www.debian.org/doc/packaging-manuals/java-policy/x73.html) that
by depending upon the java2-runtime (which is *not* supplied by gcj
3.3), the filler package is correctly identifying a dependency that
wasn't satisfied on the system of the user in bug 255831.  The fact that
there is *NO* package in Debian (main or contrib) that satisfies the
dependency is what causes the FTBFS bug.  On the other hand, once the
Free Java hackers catch up, filler should run without modification.

I'd be happy to do so, if this is the recommendation of the list.
