I tried first compiling the java files to class files with jikes
and then compiling the class file with gcj and that seems to give
much more reasonable results.



P.S. For my other problem I got a tip from Fred Gray who guessed correctly
that I was using Debian potato which seems to have a bin-utils wich has
broken support for the ".hidden" assembler directive.
So I am now trying to recompile gcc with "#undef HAVE_GAS_HIDDEN" added to
gcc/crtstuff.c after the block of #include directives.
