It looks like that part of the application might have hard-coded paths to search for libraries, since the other binaries can properly see the existing libjava.so in the PBI, and it does not seem to be respecting the "JAVA_HOME" environment variable as the other binaries do.
This might be corrected with the 10.x PBI format (still in initial testing) because it respects the standard "/usr/local" prefix instead of the specialized "/usr/pbi/<pbi>" prefix.

In the meantime, you might be better off to install openJDK7 as a package/port.
