Hmm... It doesn't seem right.
% cat /usr/local/bin/ecj.sh
/usr/local/openjdk6/bin/javac -classpath /usr/local/share/java/classes/ecj.jar $1
% /usr/local/bin/ecj.sh -version
% /usr/local/openjdk6/bin/javac -version
Please note it isn't coming from ecj.jar.
Also, `$1' should be `$*'.
Thanks for working on this, BTW.
