[wwwdocs,Java] java/faq.html -- remove non-FAQ covered by installation documentation

This is covered in the installation documentation and really not
specific to GCJ (and probably predates the merge of GCJ into GCC).
Also, it's not really an FAQ in this context.

Better focus on what is really relevant..

-          No.  You cannot configure/build in the source tree.  If you try,
-          you'll see something like:
-          <pre>
-$ ./configure [...]
-Configuring for a i686-pc-linux-gnu host.
-*** Cannot currently configure in source tree.
-          </pre>
-          Instead, you must build in another directory.  E.g.:
-          <pre>
-$ mkdir build
-$ cd build
-$ ../configure [...]
-          </pre>
-        </dd>
