This is great news and thanks for the effort.

No, unfortunately no. The ball was left at Guilhem but he is extremely
busy probably, I wrote him recently but hd no reply yet. He was working on
the event problem in our AWT.

NetBSD/x86 and Linux/x86 are reasonable, I'll receck thoug after the
changes by guilhem.
For some other platforms I am waiting for dalibro to remove or improve the
"GIF" check so I can build xawt without having gif installed, which was
previously possible except on some unfortunate condition which I don't
remember and which may need to be handled more smartly.

Unfortunately my NetBSD x86 box is in bad state since months, but I may
try on linux... it will take some time though!
