There are a few changes in Classpath that are not reflected in libgcj, 
however I wouldn't call it a rewrite. Someone has gone and rather 
gratuitously reformatted a bunch of code and created a lot of diffs, but 
there's only a few significant code changes. It does appear this bug is 
still present in the classpath version:

  * The minimum values for the calendar fields.
 private static final int[] minimums =
                                         BC, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, SUNDAY, 
1, AM,
                                         1, 0, 1, 1, 1, -(12 * 60 * 60 
* 1000),

If this bug is fixed in Classpath, I don't care if you merge it from 
there or we apply my patch.  I don't want to have to patch libgcj 4.0 
(when it is released) to get a working version.

I will defer checking in until I hear from Bryce (Or Tom Tromey). 

I will re-sync GregorianCalendar with Classpath once is back 
up. I can apply your patch in the process and make sure it goes into 
classpath as well.
