It looks like SWT DLLs are suffixed by .jnilib and SoyLatte wants DLLs that
are suffixed by .dylib.
So I succeeded to make run SWT (but I didn't try Eclipse yet) by downloading
SWT binaries from http://www.eclipse.org/swt/, renaming the .jnilib files to
.dylib in swt.jar, and simply include swt.jar in classpath :-)

BTW, the AWT port based upon SWT is going well : I've got most AWT
components and AWT handlers running.
The big part that's still missing is Canvas and Graphics.
