I believe that Matthias is aware of this.  If you do this, then
you need to edit configure.in to enable libjava.  You need autoconf
and friends to regenerate configure.  Then, configure will break
regularly when you use cvs.  It's not as bad as libffi/configure
which I think still needs a special version of autoconf.

We would like a more user friendly way of doing this.  One possibility would
be that --enable-languages=java or --enable-languages=all would result
in libjava being built for the target.  However, if --enable-languages
is not specified or doesn't include java, then the library wouldn't be
built.
