That's the rub.  As AG said, gcj uses line numbers for backtraces.  We
could change the default to -g2, but then executables would be larger
than necessary.

There are now three separate PR's for this.  I think it should be
fixed for 3.0.1 because it is a regression from 2.95 and ought to be a
low-risk patch.
