Do you really need to build all of swt, including its libraries, from |
source? The most typical scenario for wanting to build swt's jar is to
include some java-level changes (eg.- customizations, bug fix backports,
etc.), in which case only swt's java content needs to be compiled and
the libraries from its corresponding version can be used as-is.
If building the libraries from source is really needed then you need to
point at a XULRunner 1.8.x SDK corresponding to the target platform. A
XULRunner 184.108.40.206 SDK is (or at least was) available for x86 from
mozilla.org. However mozilla.org did not publish SDKs for x86_64 back
then, so we had to compile one from source, done by compiling XULRunner
220.127.116.11 from source (which creates its SDK as a side-effect). If you
grep swt's source for "XULRUNNER_SDK" then you'll see where to
substitute your path-to-XULRunner for the default value.
