GCJ 4.2 does NOT work. With minor tweaks it's possible to compile all 
Hadoop classes, including contrib, but it doesn't run properly. The 
offending class is org.apache.hadoop.io.Text (CharacterEncoder works 
differently from the Sun implementation, perhaps it's broken). This 
class (Text) is widely used throughout Hadoop, so it won't work with GCJ 
for now ...
