It doesn't conflict since javax.swing is in the lib/standard.omit file
at the moment. The build automatically picks up all the java files added
to the java(x)/gnu directories except when they are listed in the
lib/standard.omit file.

Actually it did build (and failed). I have added the java.nio package to
the lib/standard.omit file. A fresh checkout now builds again (and
ignores your javax.swing and java.nio files for the moment).

You should also make a ChangeLog entry in the top level ChangeLog file.
Please yell if the examples already in that file are not enough to
create one.

Do you have a default VM which you use to test this? How is it handled
in that case?

Let us know what goes wrong. When you are on a recent GNU/Linux platform
it should not be hard to get it to build when you install a recent
jikes, gcj and autotools and follow the instructions in the HACKING
file. Getting it to build on Windows seems to be a challenge though.
