Configuring gcj and ecj.jar to build icedtea6

I use a sourced base distribution and I am trying to figure out what all
needs to be done to build icedtea6 1.10.4 using gcj and ejc.jar.

I have gcc 4.6.1 with c++ and gcj compiled and installed and as part of
gcj it installs ecj.jar.

I can't seem to find any instructions anywhere on what to do next to get
it setup so icedtea6 will build.  

If someone can point me to information on getting gcj and ecj.jar setup
would be a big help.  Thanks.

This is what I get when I try to build icedtea6,  I have the complete
build log if that is needed.

The missing programs are installed:
make   3.82
zip    3.0 
unzip  6.0

Also is there a way to build icedtea6 without libxp since is has been
deprecated for quite a while is not normally on the system?
Is there a way to have configure look in /usr/bin for some of the
progams it looks in /bin for (exp egrep)?
