The Gtk AWT peers use JNI and are dynamically loaded, via
System.loadLibrary, when the peer code is activated.

In a --disable-shared build, there is no that can be
loaded dynamically.  So, it dies.  I don't know why you get that
particular error message, it seems weird to me.

You could try using libltdl's preloading support to get around this.
I have never tried it with libgcj but I suppose it could work.
