It is fixed in cvs.  The fix will appear in gcc 3.3.

Compile each one with `-c -o ...'.

You'll have to ask an Ant hacker.

When you compile a resource file you have to pass a special command
line option.  Otherwise gcj assumes it is java source.  I don't think
we have a plan to change this; you just have to stick with separate
compilation in this case.

Search the list for responses.  You can disable java.net, and JNI, and
maybe a couple other things.  You can link statically, though that can
cause problems.
