This is an example of why it would be very useful to make Classpath
fully bootstrappable by merging e.g. cp-tools, gjdoc, gij and gcjx into
the Classpath repository/build system.  Long term I guess this is where
we're headed but this is just another data point that we're going in the
right direction.
