Probably because it was thought that it was easier for the runtime to
provide this list. Since GNU Classpath doesn't come with a default
bootstrap class loader (they are mostly different between runtimes)
there is no easy hook to collect them all. We could of course have a
little script that collects them all during configure/build time and
then makes them available somewhere in some generated source code. Can
you write something like that?
