You're almost there...

$ gcj -shared -o mysql-jdbc.so mm.mysql-2.0.14-bin.jar

However, you should really call your shared library something else. 
JDBC drivers are often loaded by name, and the gcj's Class.forName()
uses a special search algorithm to find natively compiled classes at
runtime.  If the jdbc driver code is all in org.gjt.mm.mysql, then
you'll want to call your library (in decreasing order of preference)...

lib-org-gjt-mm-mysql.so, or 
lib-org-gjt-mm.so, or
lib-org-gjt.so, etc..
