Description Helmut Jarausch 2017-02-04 19:28:33 UTC
After switching to gcc-6.3.0 there is no gcj anymore.

What happens to packages which need gcj?

Is there a possibility to replace gcj with a different java sdk?

I think, this is a duplicate of #562568.

I believe gcc-6.3.0 still has support for building a functional gcj, as shown in The difference is just that we do not build gcj by default.

If pdftk requires gcj, shouldn't we first fix pdftk's ebuild by requiring gcj to be built in some way?

If that's the case, shouldn't we fix the easy part first so we can at least get something functional? Replacing toolchain without upstream support would be hard, but requiring us to build a toolchain (either gcc-5 or gcc-6 with gcj enabled) would be easy.

Since this issue is closed due to duplication, I'll redirect my further comments in the other issue.
