I did a rebuild of the Java bits (gcc/java, libjava) once with the
old table and once with the new table (built using gperf-3.0.1
and your command-line options). The build time went
slightly up from 20m 24.850s to 20m 28.315s (~0.2%, that
There were no regressions in the testsuite (with Jacks included).

I didn't realise you were the co-author of gperf.

Either a global maintainer has to approve it or the
maintainers of the C++ and the Java front-ends have
to approve the respective bits.
