Which version of the library are you using?  `head -5 ChangeLog'
should be enough info.

My libjava/ says this:

    jv_convert_LDADD = $( \
	    $(GCLIBS) $(THREADLIBS) $(ZLIBS) -L$(here)/.libs

You seem to be missing that final `-L'.  This -L is a hack which lets
gcj work in a semi-natural way in this environment (this is only
required because we are also building libgcj here.  Users of the
installed library won't have to do this silly thing.)
