Huh, I checked first the libgcj.objectlist, here all files are in. Then
I had a look at the stdout while linking. As well, I see all
Attributes.o and the Reference.o
I see also that we do piecewise linking. 
So either my ar is buggy or something strange happens:

If I take for example the Reference.o I see with ar -tv .libs/libgcj.a
|grep Reference.o the following:

rw-r--r--     501/20        22848 Jan  7 09:16 2002 Reference.o

This is: 
-rw-r--r--  1 andreast  staff  22848 Jan  7 09:16 javax/naming/Reference.o

In the ar order this one is the SECOND Reference.o, the first
Reference.o is in size different:

-rw-r--r--  1 andreast  staff  11540 Jan  7 07:41 java/lang/ref/Reference.o

So my guess is, Reference.o (java/lang/ref/) is overwritten by
Reference.o(javax/naming/). I cross checked on the U10(solaris2.6) and
here it works. 
The man page from ar is dated 1993. 
Right now I retry with Attributes since here we have two of three
occurences. Piecewise linking??
