[armedbear-devel] Building with gcj

Hi All,
First of, a big congrats on ABCL. It seems to be getting better
and better all the time.

I'm able to run ABCL under Java on Debian (testing) with no troubles (using
ant or build-abcl.lisp with a few changes).
However, I'm stumped about how to use gcj to make an exe. 

I'm wanting to use the exe on a site that doesn't have java, but will allow
server exes.

For a normal Java build, on Debian I needed to change the script a little so that the java and javac exe
were found at /usr/bin/java, rather than /bin/java. Perhaps this could be made into
a defconstant/defparameter?

If someone has built ABCL with gcj and could point me to some docs I may have missed
or some information that may be missing, but is in someones head or a custom
build script, please let me know.

Once I find out how to do it, I'll be more than happy to write up how it works
for the ABCL docs and build scripts.
