The GCJ guidelines became even more confusing. Right now the following
is added to the main Java Packaging guidelines:
"Building GCJ AOT bits is discouraged unless you have a very strong
reason to include them in the packages."

Two lines below this, you have a link to Packaging/GCJGuidelines. And
the first sentence when you go there says:
"GCJ AOT bits SHOULD be built and included in packages."

Please fix one or the other.
