 Replying to [comment:25 chillin-]:
 > I had heard that in some edge cases Java can outperform C++ due to JIT
 compilation, and I understand Java can reduce development time. But the
 machine in question is from 2012 and was discontinued in 2014. Whatever
 advantage I can get from native memory management vs Java's garbage
 collection I am happy to take.

 The point is this: Hardware from 2012 - or even from 2006 - is more than
 powerful enough to run Java at incredible speeds. And your preconceived
 notions that you'll suffer a performance penalty are misguided, and
 completely wrong.

 Furthermore, even the Java 6 JVM is mature enough, to provide native
 speeds. And the garbage collection was more than mature enough to ensure
 that it's not a significant factor in execution performance. (I've done
 extensive JVM/GC profiling and tuning over the years, and those are
 statements of fact.)

 So the takeaway is this: Given that the Java 8 JVM is supported as far
 back as 10.8 - and it'll provide native for whatever you throw at it -
 this whole discussion is moot.

 It sounds like the need/desire for `libgcc9` is all predicated on a
 completely wrong assumption, which is that you'll get better performance
 than Java. That's completely and utterly wrong.

 If you want to disregard guidance and advice you're being given here - and
 prefer to beat your head against the wall - that's fine. But we're trying
 to help you... and you aren't being receptive.

 So why are you asking for help, if you refuse to listen to what folks are
