 And the gcj frontend must be configured when you build gcc (obviously).  The
 following will usually work:
 ../configure --prefix=... --enable-languages=c++,java --enable-threads
 Make sure ${prefix}/bin is in your PATH before any other gcc (usually
 /usr/bin/gcc).  Try a "which gcc" or "gcc --version" to make sure you are
 getting the right version.  (This has bitten me a few times.)
