Jakub was responding to me, since I didn't see how people would end up
using the non-default libgcj.so. But his point is that some program
may link against it explicitly, or dlopen and use the invocation API.
And so, since we can't predict now which library might be used on a
fully installed system, we have to handle this somehow.
Anthony's gcj-dbtool patch went in, so we can start trying this soon.
(FWIW I also didn't like the idea of having the ABI recorded in the
Have we worked everything out now? We solved the multilib problem,
and there seems to be a consensus on where to put the .so cache.
