Description of problem:
I was able to build the java libs in db4 with gcj from gcc 4.0.0. So should this subpackage be re-enabled for rawhide again ?
OOo 1.9.0 could drop its copy of the java db4 libs if it becomes available, though right now rh#150650# is causing some troubles
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is a trivial spec change which I'm happy to do. As long as this doesn't
impact the net size of things we should be ok for FC4, which might mean dropping

Bill any objections to this?
If it works, no.
Could we perhaps do this? javadoc is now provided by gcj in the

I just tried to compile the java bits on my box running rawhide and they appear

I'm assuming we shouldn't ship those anyway since they are unversioned. But
I'll leave that up to you.

patch our ooo spec uses to get db4 working with gcj
the patch we've been using with ooo's internal copy of db4 to get it to work at
runtime with gcj
Java re-enabled in db4-4.3.27-5
not pushed though, is there outstanding problems ?
All archs other than ppc64 should be there in tomorrow's rawhide (ppc64 suffers
from bug #166657)
