Could you provide an exact build error you're observing, please?

As far as I know, we shouldn't link to libmawt.so (I assume you meant 
libmawt.so, not libxawt.so, right?) directly as there are multiple 
versions of libmawt (in i386/xawt, i386/headless, i386/motif in JDK6), 
and what libmawt.so should be used is determined in runtime. 
sun/xawt/Makefile doesn't contain -lxawt or -lmawt, which makes me 
believe my assumption is correct.
