GCJ 4.9.3 on mips64el-linux failing to build Ant.

Iâm trying to build Ant on mips64el-linux with GCJ 4.9.3. (Iâm doing
this to bootstrap IcedTea on MIPS, which needs Ant to be built.) This
works just fine on x86_64 and i686, but it fails with odd errors on
mips64el. Here is the complete build output on the MIPS build machine:
The very first error is this:
1. ERROR in /tmp/nix-build-ant-1.9.4.drv-0/apache-ant-1.9.4/src/main/org/apache/tools/bzip2/BlockSort.java (at line 121)
QSORT_STACK_SIZE < FALLBACK_QSORT_STACK_SIZE
QSORT_STACK_SIZE cannot be resolved to a variable
This is quite odd because QSORT_STACK_SIZE is defined on line 116 as
private static final int QSORT_STACK_SIZE = 1000;
The following errors are all similar and complain about various other
GCJ is built with the latest version of ECJ published here:
Weâre using the âjavacâ wrapper template from Gentoo:
Is ECJ or GCJ known to not be functional on mips64el or must I have done
something wrong in configuring or building it on this platform?
Iâd be very happy for any hints.
