I think so, yes.  It's not very likely that I'll find the time to
address this before lenny is gone.  This time is likely better spent
on bringing IcedTea6 1.10 to squeeze, anyway.

Current versions of IcedTea6 1.8 (which Debian calls "OpenJDK",
somewhat incorrectly) can only be bootstraped from GCJ; self-hosting
is not supported.  GCJ was removed on alpha before lenny was released,
so we lost our bootstrap path.
