Re: gcj: error trying to exec 'ecj1': execvp

Hi Andrew,

Thanks a lot for this link!

Do I have to rename the ecj-4.3.jar to ecj.jar to be recognised ?

what do you mean exactly by "topmost source tree" ? Is
~/gcc-4_4-branch (i.e. the main folder created by the the svn checkout
command) OK ?

How can I make sure that the ./configure script has "found" it ?
