Thanks for trying.  I didn't realize savannah had that requirement.

I've read through the remainder of the thread, and see that various
people have various suggestions/criticisms.  However, removing fastjar
isn't up for debate; the decision has been made, and we have to live
with it.

It is fine, however, if you want to leave in the support for building
with fastjar in-tree; there's no FSF problem with having that support in
place.  Everyone agrees that fastjar is free software, so it's just the
actual inclusion in GCC that's an issue.

Thank you for following through on this chore; I recognize it doesn't
feel as satisfying, as, say, fixing a bug. :-)
