When I do this gcc-java shows up:

gcc-core             3.4.4-999            OK
gcc-g++              3.4.4-999            OK
gcc-java             3.4.4-999            OK <---
gcc-mingw-core       20050522-3           OK

When I call gcc-java, I get a command not found error. In C:\cygwin\bin the gcc-java binary is not there, yet it claims to be installed (tried reinstalling). I can call all other commands in \bin\
