[Buildroot] Updating GNU classpath

I wanted to update GNU classpath to version 0.99 (released March 2012,
but anyway, latest release).

Unfortunately there seems to be a bug in the autoconf scripts, such that
configure always fails when specifying --disable-tools[1].
I'm no expert in autoconf scripts but I looked at them for some time and
couldn't find the root cause of the bug.

Can we enable the tools option and delete the binaries before/after
installing? Or just enable this option and be done with it?
It bumps the package size from ~ 9.6 MB to 10.7 MB.

What is the preferred way forward?
