Yes, Anthony has a Makefile for building this compiler with gcj.  The
end result is a command-line compiler he calls "ecj".  I've used this
(actually a variant that builds the compiler as a .so), with some ant
glue, to build Eclipse from source.  The command-line parsing code is
already in the Eclipse cvs tree.
