I noticed in at least for single line if statements that
the syntax was "[ test ] && statement" whereas "if [ test ]; then
statement1; statement; fi" is used for multi-line blocks.  In this
patch you used the second form for a single line statement.  Is
this the preferred form going forward?  My patch uses the "old" form.

Also, I did get the config option working in, which since
this is gcc specific that seems like it would be the better place
(instead of in case another compiler is supported some day.

I wasn't sure what the syntax would be.  I have added it to my patch.

It's for editing libjava, so option 3 should be fine.  I didn't
put anything for it in my patch.

I'm using SVN version 1294 and it seems to be working so far.
