Simplicity is the goal.  Rather than rebuilding gcc (to include gcj),
then ecj, gcj-compat, the extra jars, etc., one download is provided to
bootstrap the build.  Simply drop the extracted tarball into /opt, add
the bin dir to path, and they are off and running, and it is easily
removed after they are done with it.

I just figured I'd ask first before duplicating work that is already
done (and am glad that I did).  I'm going to take a look at the
--with-gcj-home option first, since that can be beneficial for more than
myself, and see if I can get that going, but I'll be poking around in 7
now as well, provide a local patch for the book if needs be.  :-)

Thanks for the help.
