Description of problem:
Set the gnu.gcj.runtime.VMClassLoader.library_control property to "never" and you'll see that Eclipse starts up a little faster (15-20 seconds for me).
See this thread:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Modify the eclipse startup script by adding -Dgnu.gcj.runtime.VMClassLoader.library_control=never
What are we going to do when we get rid of the wrapper script?

There's also a corresponding GCC bug report for changing the default in libgcj.
..but I don't know when that may happen.
Were you planning on removing the script prior to FC5?

Hopefully, yes. See bug 168726.
I guess I could put this into the forthcoming FC4 update.
Igor, can you look at this before we do an FC4 update, please?
Since we have no wrapper in FC4 either, this isn't going to happen until it's
the gcj default.

Well, there's actually a wrapper executable (the /usr/lib/eclipse/eclipse). You
should be able to simply set that property in that program, no?
