With some seriously ugly hacks i got it to compile and run, of course
still a lot of bugs but when it would be a real community project (no
copyright assignments, and no CC-non-commercial license) I think it can
be made to work with gcj.
Many community projects including all of the GNU ones require copyright
assignments. That is on many occasions a good practice.
