Yes - this is a known deficiency - and something we plan on addressing
soon.  Gcj has different linker flag requirements depending on the
target.  We will probably mess around with moving some of this info
into external spec files.

And you didn't have CLASSPATH defined when you compiled, right?  Can
you provide a stack trace?

Inner classes will take some effort.  It's not yet clear when this
will be done.  Compiling AWT from source depends on inner class
support (although compiling from class files shouldn't be a problem).
Note, however, that an java/awt directory appeared in cvs some time
last night.  It's the start of an implementation - but again, it's not
clear when this work will be done.
