In general, no, although the GPDE library has OpenMP pragmas.

There is no Java code.

The libraries are all C, most programs are C, one program
(r.terraflow) is C++, there are a number of Bourne shell scripts, a
GUI in Tcl/Tk, another GUI in Python, plus two programs (v.digit and
nviz) using a mixture of C and Tcl/Tk.
