Cygwin includes both those new versions and the older (more generally
available) versions ... I tend to agree that since only people maintaining
the classpathx packages should need to use autoconf/automake, it'd be
reasonable to require those versions.  BUT:  make sure they fail cleanly
when anyone tries to use the old versions!!

Looking forward to something that "gnujaxp" can use... :)

So you're mostly thinking about the "compile packages faster" question.
A similar solution could work for the "compile to shared object" case.

Likely worth avoiding, though as you note GCJ is faster than "javac" so
such penalties shouldn't be significant -- when using GCJ.

Actually Nic's Makefile templates achieve the same goal.  Perhaps not
as elegantly as might be desired, but "javac ... @filelist" just gets the
files that have been recently modified.
