While I'm all for getting IcedTea to be the default, we don't have
arch-specific comps right now, and we really don't want to go down that
path.  Which means we should either
a) Do what dgilmore suggested and use java/java-devel to pull the right
thing in based on arch
b) Set both to default in comps, which will end up installing both gcj
and IcedTea on platforms where IcedTea is available but then not cause
problems for platforms where gcj is still the only answer
