Hmmm... yeah, I already seen that issue when I tried to build gdal
java bindings under Windows, which unfortunately failed later because
java would not load the generated binding libraries.

Anyways, the following patch fixed the issue:

--- include/java/ogr_java.i     (revisione 11066)
+++ include/java/ogr_java.i     (copia locale)

+%pragma(java) jniclassimports=%{
+import org.gdal.osr.SpatialReference;
+import org.gdal.osr.CoordinateTransformation;
  %pragma(java) moduleimports=%{
  import org.gdal.osr.SpatialReference;

What's funny is that under Linux the patch was not needed.
Under Linux I'm using swig 1.3.28 whilst on Windows the same
as you, 1.3.31.

I hope you manage making the libraries load too... just try
out one of the programs in the java bindings /apps directory...
no matter where I did put the libraries, it complained
that it could not load the libraries. This usually is caused
by failing to load a required library (transitively, that is,
it's not that it's not finding the gdal libs, but something
these depend onto).
