gjdoc classes reside in tools/gjdoc. They end up in their own gjdoc.jar.
--with-rt-jar is there to help cross-compiling & bootstrapping.
--with-gjdoc is there because not everyone may need a javadoc
implementation. For example, debian ships gjdoc as a its own package.
gjdoc needs libxmlj. That library is currently not built by default, so
gjdoc should not be built by default either. So cleaning that up was a
part of the larger gmp-math & awt-implemenations, to only build the java
libraries that are needed.
I could change it to --enable-gjdoc, if that would make it clearer.
