As fellow Gentoo user I approve! :)

Stock BCEL was unloved for a very long time and the AJ team found many
bugs that required patches. There were some discussions about moving to
ASM and/or possibly merging the changes back to BCEL upstream but I don't
know what happened to that. So it seems you will have to package the
patched aj-bcel jar.
