iOS: missing native font lib (a) in SDK directory

Niklas has RoboVM ready and waiting for this.

I have the RoboVM Maven plugin already able to build a Java app on RoboVM
and run this in a simulator or on a connected device, all from the command
line (mvn robovm:ipad-sim, etc). You need only a Mac and must have xcode
installed, everything else (robovm download, llvm download) just happens.
This works right now without JFX.

To include JFX, we are waiting only on the jar and library files from an
iOS build of Danno's back port. Danno in turn is waiting on these usable
build scripts from the JFX team.

Once I have a copy of the iOS built libraries of JFX (they do not need to
be in Maven, I just need copies of them),  it should be two or three days
before people are able to use this to produce JFX iOS apps and this should
be very easy for the average punter to do.

Obviously there's a lot going on with the move to gradle, but we are a few
lines of Gradle build code away from JFX on iOS. I'm keen to find out just
how well it will run.
