Personally I suspect it isn't so bad, at least for Linux. Would it
help if we had a script to automate the process?
Working on an unmodified classpath is a plus for SableVM, though,
that's for sure. We're quite a ways off from being able to do
something like that.

The Gtk peers are written using JNI. They are mostly developed on the
so-called "gui branch" in the gcc cvs repository. Graydon merges the
peers, the AWT core, and Swing to the mainline once a month and then
(I think Michael did this last time, apologies all around since I
don't remember) to Classpath.
So, in general I would expect Classpath to lag about a month behind.
However, we're definitely keeping Classpath in the loop and at some
point, when things are complete and fairly bug-free, I would expect
the divergences to be nil.
