question about old patch


Jakub, I have a question about this patch:

2004-01-20  Jakub Jelinek  <jakub@redhat.com>

	* Makefile.am (lib_org_w3c_dom_la_LIBADD,
	lib_org_w3c_dom_la_LDFLAGS): New.
	(lib_org_xml_sax_la_LIBADD, lib_org_xml_sax_la_LDFLAGS): New.
	* Makefile.in: Rebuilt.

Original post is here:

    http://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2004-01/msg02012.html

Yesterday I looked into a bug report where gij crashed in certain
circumstances.  It turns out if gij tries to load lib-org-xml-sax.so,
since this is linked against libgcj.so, we get duplicate registration
of classes, causing a failure.

We can fix this by changing these libraries so that they don't depend
on libgcj.so.  But before doing that I'd like to understand why you
changed these libraries to link against libgcj.so.

Is it just for developer convenience?  If so I think we can safely
remove this, since libgcj.spec ensures that libgcj.so is linked in.

Tom
