I have no idea about libjcj specifically since I don't know what it is. 
I can tell you that you do not need 1.4, I can also tell you that 
tools.jar has been a standard part of the java distribution since the 
very early days.

I'm guessing that libgcj is supposed to be a Java Virtual Machine, if 
this is correct then it must provide the classes that are in tools.jar 
(assuming it is complete). You ay need to adjust the classpath set in 
the ant build files to accomodate your setup.

If you get this working please provide some documentation for us to add 
for those coming after you.
