I was hoping to provide feedback on these, but I currently can't build
the tree. The corba build fails with:
/bin/sh: Check_ALT_JDK_IMPORT_PATH/bin/javac: not found
In the past setting ALT_BOOTDIR=/usr/local/jdk-1.6.0 was good enough
to build the tree from scratch. Have things changed an now we need to
keep an old 1.7 build around to point ALT_JDK_IMPORT_PATH at?
I'll keep looking into what's going with my build...
