I'd have expected regeneration to use GCJ built to use ECJ, though I don't

I've never tried this.  Given that the .class file lives below
libjava/classpath and has to be synced with upstream Classpath anyway, I
hope the Java maintainers will take care of that.

This it documented (although perhaps badly) in install/configure.html

You should use --enable-java-maintainer-mode, this will cause the build to use ecj and gjavah to regenerate all the generated files in the 'standard' manner.

At least with the javac-built File.class I had no libjava testsuite

It probably results in a usable .class file, but is error prone and not very reproducible.
