[2004-04-26] Package-Private Class Access in GCJ

This weekend I thought I would try my luck at nailing down another instance of illegal package-private access that GCJ lets through (PR java/15073). As luck would have it, I was able to come up with a patch that fixes that problem. The great thing about this patch is that it also simplifies my fix to the other package-private access problem, by removing a nagging kludge that was needed for that fix to work properly. (If you must know, not_accessible_p() in "java/parse.y" was being called even for classes and not just members as it was supposed to be - the kludge was needed to account for such rogue TYPE_DECLs.) Cool!
