Yeah, in the case where java-gcj-compat is merged into libgcj (ie libgcj is set
up to look like a JVM) then this option makes sense.
libgcj would install its .jars and whatever other JVMish files applications
expect to find into this directory, and set java.home accordingly.
I don't see a reason why we couldn't go ahead and implement this on HEAD now,
even though an external wrapper would still be needed for now to use ecj as javac.
I so think it seems a bit non-intuitive to have --with-java-home just set a
property and not actually install things into that directory, relying on an
external package to actually populate it, however. We should at least install
libgcj.jar into the directory given?
