gcj has a wrapper script that provides a commandline interface like
Sun's javac, so the current solution works with gcj. I am thinking about
reversing this -- i.e. gcj is the "official" compiler, for all others we
may find and support, configure emits a wrapper script.

Building both .class and .o files is straightforward even in current
automake -- just list the .java files as _SOURCES and _JAVA. The only
problem is that _JAVA cannot do packages.
