I don't think so. sqrtf should be defined by java/lang/w_sqrt.o in 
libjava. libgcj doesn't need libstdc++ so you shouldn't need to link it.

Some people like -c (context diff) but -u (unified diff) seems to be the 
most popular for GCC. So, -u is fine.

It looks fine. is only used occasionally when trying to get a 
new port up and running, which is why it is broken so often. Any patch 
to fix it is welcome ;-)
