I just spent a long time tracking this down, and nobody else on google had ever reported a solution. So I’m posting this so the next person wit h this problem can find this post.
If you see this error when linking something in JNI:
$ gcc -dynamiclib -o libDirectorySyncer.jnilib target/c/dsync.o -framework JavaVM ld: framework not found JavaVM
it’s because leopard has messed up your JDK folder:
$ ls -l /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/Current /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/Current@ -> 1.6.0
Wrong! It needs to be pointing to “A”. No idea why.
$ cd /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/ $ sudo rm Current $ sudo ln -s A Current
That will fix it. Yay!
