I believe that getting IcedTea to work on an OSX port is a great thing,
but... I I think this should be an extended goal that's tackled first for
OpenJDK 7 (since it already builds on OSX).
I think the milestones toward getting a robust OSX release for OpenJDK 6
1.) Get a baseline build of the latest OpenJDK 6 code bundle (currently b20)
to build on OSX 10.5 Intel in 32-bit mode. There should be a minimal set
of patches applied to the make files and source code similar to what is
currently done for OpenJDK 7 BSD port.
2.) Get the above build working as a universal binary.
3.) Make sure the above Universal binary runs really well on 10.4 PPC thru
