just to give you some feedback. Jhandles is not windows only. It is java based 
and uses the library jogl (java opengl bindings) which is also available for 
many platforms (including linux of course). And yes the binding to the native 
libs for opengl is done via jni.
I compiled the jhandles package (and also used it) several times on my 
opensuse PC and my opensuse laptop with version 3.0 and recently with 3.2.4 (I 
did not yet try it with the 3.3.52 tarball or the development version but can 
give you feedback for the 3.3.52 in a few days).
It works with 3.2.4 on opensuse 11.2 64 bit but I did not do much testing just 
started some of my scripts to see if it behaves as it should.

So it should definitely compile and run on debian and it should be simpler 
than on suse I guess.
