You ought to be able to configure with the appropriate target and have
it work. There might be some configure hacking to do because we've
never really tried a host-x-host port of libgcj. Still, it might
Note that the bytecode interpreter does not yet work on ARM. No one
has written the libffi support for that yet.
Also, while I know some work has been done on making the ARM Linux
port work, I have never tried it myself. I don't know its current
