>   JDK-8087516: Conditional support in JavaFX for GTK 3 on Linux

This is a real problem for the SWT-FX integration because SWT is more
and more setting GTK3 as the default. We (the OSGi-FXClassloader)
currently saves people from hard core-dumps by refusing to load FXCanvas
but they'll get a CNF instead with a decent error message why we refused
to load that classes.

Naturally this requires FXCanvas to work in FX9 but that is a different
topic ;-)
