Please keep in mind that I have no other version of gcj/libgcj
installed on my system.  This is deliberate; I want to find bugs 
that crop up when you don't.

For instance, I would still hit the -c -o bug in libtool, if Alexandre
hadn't come up with a patch (which has not been applied).

It may be having other effects.

I don't tend to supply any --enable switches, again, because I want to
find bugs that crop up when you don't.  If there is a required
--enable option, it should be the default, and contrariwise if it
isn't the default it shouldn't be required.  And not being required
means that the test suite should notice and mark those test cases as
UNSUPPORTED.

I'll rebuild with --enable-threads=posix, but that will take several
hours.
