That's  the thing.  gcc30  port,  essentially, installs  a  copy of  the
compiler already available as part of  the base. But the base is missing
gcj (the port does too for now), so one would be forced to add the port.

If it were  possible (through a port) to add  just gcj (and accompanying
libraries) to integrate with the already present gcc and other bits, but
it  is  not :-(  Even  the  things like  libiberty  and  libbfd are  not

Can we have  those installed, at least,  to ease the work  of the future
