Yeah! It would be nice to have gnu-crypto as standard debian package.
gnu-crypto can also be used as normal jce provider and has a lot more
(and often faster) algorithms available then standard gcj has.

I have added the following to my own /usr/lib/security/
Which makes programs that use lots of SHA1 digest operations for example
a lot faster.

Sorry my knowledge about this subject is limited to being a debian user
and liking the fact that jar files can always be found in
/usr/share/java which is convenient.
This is also the place where libgcj gets installed by default.
(Actually ${prefix}/share/java)

It seems to work nicely for generating the GNU Classpath documentation.
But you probably want a recent version (the version packaged for Debian
is really old) which comes with LibxmlJ (a wrapper around the very fast
Libxml2 and Libxslt libraries). See for the latest release announcement:
