Minutes later I sent a mail indicating that the Java bindings do build now! The
installation build target completes successfully, but doesn't produce a usable
system.

Speaking of tests, in I what little time I have to spend developing the
SWIG/Java bindings, I will be developing simple automated tests in conjunction.
  I was wondering on how to tie these tests in with the existing build and test
system. Should they be run as part of the main test suite when --enable-swig is
true for the Java bindings? I need to work this out before starting any real
development, as I lack extra time to repeatedly invest in working on the actual
build logic -- that time is better spent getting the bindings application code
to work.
