Since this is the sort of error which in the past has afflicted users
who don't already know a lot about gcj, I would like to see a
relatively verbose error message here.
The `java.lang.Object' that was found in `%s' didn't have
the special zero-length `gnu.gcj.gcj-compiled' attribute.
This generally means that your classpath is incorrect set.
Use `info gcj "Input Options"' to see the info page describing
how to set the classpath.
Maybe that's too long.
(I know g77 has a convention for printing info page reference
information in error messages. This seems like a cool idea to me,
since it means that some IDE-ish program could easily go from the error
message to the help text. If we want an info reference I guess it
would make sense to look up their convention and use it.)
