"Making dlopen() "work" in static binaries is basically asking the ELF 
spec to bend itself over a table...." - Todd Vierling

Perhaps the answer here is to make "-static" for GCJ mean statically 
linked to libgcj, but still dynamically linked against the other system 
libraries. That should be possible with a bit of .spec hacking? Or 
would this mess up legitimate uses for the "real" -static?
