As I mentioned before, libjava is *NOT* properly detecting header files
and libraries, and is thus not defining half the includes it should define
in the autoheader file.  You *HAVE* to go into libjava/config/ and hand
verifying the contents, line-by-line, of the .h file generated by
configure.  Otherwise you will be getting compile-time errors to no end. 
Also, the install script is not recognizing .exe extentions properly, so
you may have to tweak it.  This is what I had to do to get libjava to
compile on my system, that and the exceptions I mentioned in my previous
email.  Hope this helps.  For the benefit of the archives, if you are
compiling libgcj in cygwin you must use CYGWIN=check_case:strict,
otherwise the java libraries won't get built.
