Note that when I say "use the JTS bindings", I mean "compile JTS to  
native code using GCJ, and then compile PostGIS against that".   
Functionally, it's basically the same as using GEOS, the source just  
happens to be written in Java instead of C++ -- the library code is  
fully native, no JVM is required/used.  So the only question is "do I  
trust GCJ", which for Linux is a question I would answer with a  
fairly confident "yes".
