That makes sense.

Norman> 2) GCJ doesn't like double constants like "0E-9" (jikes and javac do).

Thanks.  I agree this is a bug.
Could you submit a PR for this?

Offhand I doubt it, but you could check the linker reference manual to
make sure.

You could make a C file with dummy definitions for the missing symbols.

Or you could change your program so that the AWT dependencies are in a
module that doesn't need to be linked in.

Or you could write the missing classes :-)

Norman> Q2: Are you at all interested in a more detailed bug report against

I don't think so, since we already know a lot of stuff is missing.
