A little remark from a gcc outsider:
To me using #include (or separate directories that are entered confitionally)
seem to be the much better approach.
On the other hand gcj already is doing the symlink approach, and changing this
for a single file seems to be a very bad idea.
If I were you I'd decouple the dicsussion of fixing it from your java.nio
