FWIW, my current gcc's ChangeLog ends with:

Thu Oct 12 16:02:31 MET DST 2000 Jan Hubicka  <>

(try "cvs -z9 update -D 2000/10/13 20:00:00 -dP")

And it all built fine using:

../configure --enable-languages=c++,java --enable-threads=posix
--enable-shared --prefix=/usr/local/gcc --enable-libstdcxx-v3

The "--enable-libstdcxx-v3" is now required to build libgcj, because
otherwise you wont get a libsupc++.

You should just be able to delete the "-lsupc++" from libjava's Makefile if
you want to build with an old (pre-October 9) compiler.
