Many, many. Since I am using a quite old machine with only
64MB and PowerPC programs seem to be bigger than their x86
counterparts, I need to use only smaller programs. But I have
Window Maker and blackbox installed.
If you also want some Desktop Environments (not window
managers!) like KDE and GNOME, they are also available.

Do you *need* rlogin? Can't you use Open SSH?

Depending on what you need, gcj may be what you want.
On the other hand, I see that incoming.debian.org has j2sdk1.3
packages, but they don't seem to have entered debian now.
