There's a bug in Classpath (fixed in CVS) which means that if it is configured with --disable-gconf-peer, the gconf peer is still the default preferences peer.
As a result, it fails if code tries to initialise the preferences factory as it is unable to find libgconfpeer.
public class TestGConf
public static void main(String args)
The solution is to also add the --enable-default-preferences-peer=file into build.xml until a more recent Classpath is available and in use.
Additionally, disabling gconf should be an option not a static part of the build.
