My only concern is there be some trivial mechanism to generate a US
export-friendly version GNU Classpath, like..

$ configure --disable-munitions

My understanding is that the US government has made it simpler to
distribute FOSS crypto code in recent years, but I have a situation
where I actually need to strip all export controlled crypto.  To be
honest, I'm not sure what specific algorithms this means.  It's possible
that Classpath already contains some.

In any case, it would be nice if the configury and build process could
automatically handle the absence of crypto algorithms.
