This issue was reported for Linux before, so the note in java/README
talks about Linux because I'm still working on my omniscience.

But this page talks about solaris or win32 (and doesn't mention linux):

OK, that's useful to know.  I guess a case statement checking the
platform we are building for is the best we can do, but it's an ugly
solution and not very future proof, since Sun could add support for
new platforms (I believe that Linux support was added more recently
which is probably why the JNI FAQ doesn't mention it).

If you mean Mac OS X, that installs jni.h in
/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Headers (phew!) which we
already have in the list of paths to check.
