Nope.  AFAIK it is already as parallelized as possible, but it has been
a while since I looked at it.

I thought the really bad file (HTML_401F.java, IIRC) had some functions
split up so that it wasn't so evil any more.

The multilib thing sounds like a top-level problem of some kind.
At least, I don't recall that libjava does anything special here.
