Theoretically you are right. But John Leuner recently removed all Event
support from Classpath. While not the most elegant solution this should
make Classpath awt compile out of the box. And it does for me.

How did you configure? Maybe your checkout is not completely up to date?
As a workaround you can use libgcj.jar or (from kaffe) in
your classpath, but that should not be neccessary.

I would like to see the standard.omit file as small as possible.
Ideally for me all java files in the cvs tree should be compilable
with gcj, jikes or kjc without any additional (boot)classpaths set.
And we would only select the class files that we don't want to
ship by default.
