I think it is because yum uses package name length in this case (for lack of
any better information) to pick between java-1.5.0-gcj-devel and
java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel. They both satisfy java-devel >= 1.5.0 so in theory
either should be fine.
Orion is right in that either should be fine because both satisfy that
requirement, but I too have found javadoc generation to be
particularly flakey with GCJ.
In order to work around this, I think it is ok to BuildRequire
java-devel >= 1:1.6.0 as long as you build with source=1.5 and
