pdftk has a hard dependency on GCJ because it's a C++ program that uses a Java

Switch to pdftk version 2 doesn't change the basic architecture of the program.
(We really want to get rid of GCJ.)
What a pity that gcj (as a project) has been abandoned.
Really interesting technology, now in some way reinvented
many years later through Dalvik/ART.
