I don't believe anyone ever tried that. But I think it should work (and
afterwards you should have an icedtea that you can then use for future
bootstrapping). But you can install the ubuntu packages on Debian sid
the normal dependencies should just resolve, the only problem is with
the build-deps, but as long as you don't want to rebuild the deb itself
that shouldn't be a big issue. Add the following to your apt source.list

deb http://people.ubuntu.com/~doko/ubuntu/ gutsy/

And aptitude update && aptitude install icedtea-java7-jdk

Then you can bootstrap your own icedtea sources with:
./configure --with-icedtea-home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-icedtea
