Hi David,

have you considered that sun-jdk runs under Linux emulation?
I would expect that you need to compile your native functions
into a Linux binary to get this working.

If this is not an option you could try to use a native JDK.
pkgsrc-wip has packages for native versions of Sun's JDKs, see (never tried them, though).
