Yep. Though it does seem odd that there are two alternatives from the
same package. Maybe using update-alternatives --configure to switch from
one to the other will help, but it seems really unlikely.

Neither of these will help, since you're using a Sun JDK, which doesn't
use GNU classpath as its runtime.
