Unfortunately, I don't think your going to get the answer you're looking 
for.  To date, I've not seen anyone even attemp a gcc-3.4 patch for 
j2sdk.  Hopefully 5.0 SCSL (or whatever happens with Sun's open source 
initiative) won't be too far away.  In the interim, use gcc-3.3 or use 
the binary...both methods work just fine.
