On the trunk.  java is disabled by default on the branch, so it never gets
built on the branch when I do a bootstrap.

OK.  Another thing I got wrong.

Primarily because I don't get a java-signal.h file.  So something must be
failing somewhere.  I don't think it is AC_LINK_FILES specifically, but
there is something very definitely broken.  And I don't want to waste a
lot of time on libjava.  I'm just trying to do a bootstrap here.  So I'm
only doing a cursory investigation of the libjava build problems.

If libjava is broken because of Richard's EH changes, then I can live with
that.  If this isn't going to be fixed soon, then perhaps we should turn
java support off by default so that bootstraps work again.
