Blackdown JDK and sid (was: Re: java 1.4 for ppc)

Is there any way to get the Blackdown JDK for PowerPC to work with Debian sid? 
It seems to be a combination of a couple things. Prior to 02c, it seemed to 
be a gcc-2.95 vs. gcc-3.2 issue, but now it seems to be a libc-2.3 issue (but 
the compiler issue might still be there). One error in particular I keep 
running into is this:

/usr/local/j2sdk1.3.1/bin/ppc/native_threads/jar: relocation error: 
/usr/local/j2sdk1.3.1/jre/lib/ppc/classic/libjvm.so: symbol __divdi3, version 
GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference

libc.so.6 is pointing to libc-2.3.1.so in /lib. I also cannot get the plugin 
to work with current versions of the Mozilla package. If I download Mozilla 
1.3 compiled with gcc-2.95, then the plugin works, so that makes me think 
that there are still compiler version issues with 02c. But I could be totally 
off on all of this... :)

The most subversive thing you can do is assign full humanity to each and every 
individual on this planet.
