Comment (by pierre.labastie):

 I wonder whether this package couldn't be splitted, specially the java
 (gcj) part. It is possible to install a JVM by using appropriate switches
 in configure, but there are specific requirements (X libs and others),
 which are not needed for building the other language compilers.

 The minimum would be to move the gcj compiler to the JAVA subsection, to
 include instructions for building a JVM, and to incorporate the ecj jar
 (which would allow to build openjdk later on)

 The ADA compiler could also have its own page, because it uses the gnat
 binary for building, while the other compilers only need the compilers
 installed in LFS.
