Here is an update on this. There were some changes done to swt-gtk in
Ubuntu (version 3.4-2ubuntu2) to fix FTBFS on lpia and powerpc. I am
not sure if those changes are still relevant. Since the default-jdk is
different in Ubuntu and Debian, I can not rely on Debian build logs to
decide whether to drop these changes. And since currently openjdk is
not installable (dependency problems) on powerpc in karmic chroot I
can not try building the source package from Debian.

So this merge (or sync) will have to wait till openjdk becomes
installable on powerpc.
