The non-peer part of the classpath AWT implementation is not being actively
developed. We are working on a new "JDK 1.3 compliant" AWT/Java2D
implementation in the libgcj tree. Unfortunately, this work cannot
currently be merged into classpath due to a licensing issue: Classpath's
AWT classes are LGPL while libgcj's, like the rest of classpath, uses the
GPL+exception license. Once this is resolved, I imagine that the libgcj AWT
will replace the existing classpath AWT.

The DataInputStream/RandomAccessFile errors are my fault - I merged some
classes from libgcj without checking the classpath build. I'm going to fix
this (and any other build errors I come across) soon.
