GCJ-4.4 works fine on hppa, currently waiting in NEW ... so if you do want to
see this resolved, please help with getting this accepted.
Note that this doesn't work very well with NPTL (Ubuntu karmic), so please make
sure that this continues to work with an glibc update.
OpenJDK is non-trivial. Andrew Haley did have a look at this and came to the
conclusion that the byte code interpreter for the zero port needs porting for
archs with upward growing stacks.
Maybe hotspot is an alternative? Did somebody ask HP to open-source their
hotspot port of sun-java5?
