Think again :)
The JCC route is much easier to install and the runtime size much easier to
control. By default, depending on the OS, the Java VM uses around 32-64m.
There is no reason to believe (and much harder to measure) that libgcj,
gcj's VM, is using any less. Also, getting gcj to produce a sane PyLucene on
Solaris might be tricky.

Yes, gcj is tricky to get right. On the other hand, jcc-PyLucene is almost
trivial to install in comparison.
