would it be possible to get those compilers finally dropped? they don't build
on ARM at all, and for months the submitrequests from the devel project are
rejected due to licensing policy changes in Factory. I don't see any solution
going forward and I don't know what it takes to get it finally removed. I'm
pretty sure that nothing depends on it anymore as we have removed all
dependencies on those compilers for the ARM port (at least as far as it
mattered to us).

For openjdk, we need only the latest gcj, so the former ones can be
easilly dropped and everyone will be happy.

I've issued following delete requests

openSUSE:Factory libgcj41 140302
openSUSE:Factory libgcj43 140303
devel:gcc libgcj43 140304
devel:gcc libgcj41 140304

@michael: feel free to drop the libgcj4[1-6] from devel:gcc too
