I think the JNI linkage is done by opening libswt at runtime.
However, there do exist

    jint (JNICALL *RegisterNatives)
      (JNIEnv *env, jclass clazz, const JNINativeMethod *methods,
       jint nMethods);
    jint (JNICALL *UnregisterNatives)
      (JNIEnv *env, jclass clazz);

which allow you to register native methods that are statically linked,
so what you want to do is possible, at least in principle.  Whether
it's worth the effort I have no idea.
