Why? I don't see why it should.
Well, if the package really is pre-compiled then it will inherently
depend gcj rather than jdk. I don't know how Java packages work these
days, but I guess they could be compiled and cached "at need".
Still, does your Q/A really want to support that Java Application X
works with *any* valid Java implementation Y, including third-party ones?
