OK, so 'java' from gcj accepts the same args as 'java' from the JDK. OK.

So, I still say we should keep the original check, and then check that
java is not from gcj :

    check_prog_host "java"
    if java -version 2>&1 |grep gcj >/dev/null 2>&1; then
        echo "Failed"
        exit 1
    fi

check_prog_host already calls 'which $1' so we're sure we can call 'java'.
