To expound on this, the '-static-libgcj' option was created so that all 
the other things you have there would be unneeded.

I doubt you want any of: -shared-libgcc -Wl,-non_shared -lgcj 
-Wl,-call_shared -lstdc++ -Wl,--as-needed -lgcc_s -lpthread -lc -lm -ldl 
-lrt -Wl,--no-as-needed -Wl,-O1


Start off with -static-libgcj on a very simple 'hello-world' type 
program.  Then start adding all your other things in.
