This brings me to my first of several annoyances with java-gnome. They currently use .so names like libgnomejar2.7.so. This works fine if you're building executables and don't mind linking directly to those libraries. However, if you want to support dynamic discovery and loading of these classes you'll want to use the special naming conventions described in the gcj manual. I worked around this problem with a few symlinks.
There were a few more annoyances with java-gnome, but they are all minor and easily fixable. I'll follow up with those guys soon.
All this software was built with my tweaked jhbuild. I sent my changes to fitzsim, who is also trying to push his changes upstream.
