Yeah, this is fixed in upstream gcc bugzilla by renaming them grmic,
grmiregistry and fastjar.
That's good to know, and good to be able to report to my co-workers.
They are "safe" to remove provided you are
using some alternate rmic, rmiregistry and jar implementations.
... as in the Sun-standard distribution. (And someone on Sun's jmx list
tells me that rmic is now built into the standard javac compiler and the
proxies are generated at runtime, or something. That's goint to take a
