Actually, I heard the other day that gcj (which is what you meant) does
include a Java runtime. The project page is here:
The gcj runtime module has filename libgcj, and "provides the core class
libraries, a garbage collector, and a bytecode interpreter".
I'm going to have to amend my standard Java-on-Linux writeup
(http://linuxmafia.com/~rick/linux-info/java) to take this into account.
Cheers, Emacs is a good operating system, but I prefer Linux.
