That's unreasonable. We would have to turn off support for all
languages on the PA on that basis ;(
Users have control over what they build with --enable-languages.

build_by_default could be set appropriately in java/config-lang.in.

Sparc and sparc64 have a comparable number of failures in 3.4
to that of the new PA support. i686-pc-cygwin has more.
Enabling java by default will provide more testing and use, and
hopefully these problems will get fixed faster. A friend is
working on using the new libffi support with mozilla for the PA.
Thus, I favor leaving things as is on the main for the time being.
