I think it would be great to do that for Ubuntu (feisty and gutsy) and
for Debian (etch, lenny, unstable).
Separately I just started building IcedTea and my version of gcj
on feisty is not sufficiently up to date.
Michael has done some work (already) on defining build dependencies
for IcedTea on Debian.
I'd be glad to host such repositories (meta packages for build dependencies
for OpenJDK and IcedTea) on java.net.
p.s. one of the patches we'll have to add to IcedTea has to do with
jar naming (see David Herron's mail)
