I'm not sure what you mean by "integration with java/gcj/ant into the lfs
system" ?
Do you mean to implement a ALFS tool as an extension to Ant, or to add
functions to call Ant from a (n)ALFS tool, or something else yet ?

I discarded the idea of building a ALFS in java because i thought the sun
is too large, while adding nALFS to a LFS is very easy, but i didn't think
of gcj. Is it easy to install ? Do you know which XML parsers work with gcj

I tried my first installation (manually) starting from a debian
that i removed thereafter, and i didn't have any special problem to build
