>From Arno's first message it looks as though the missing reference comes from
the output of jvgenmain, which now generates class declarations as:

extern int class __attribute__ ((alias ("_Q43gnu3gcj7convert7Convert.class$")));

This symbol should be resolved in libjava/gnu/gcj/convert/Convert.o.

Is there any chance FreeBSD can't handle `.' or `$' in identifier names? 
(Doesn't FreeBSD use GNU binutils?)
