FWIW, the fix for
6681796: hotspot build failure on gcc 4.2.x (ubuntu 8.04) w/ openjdk 6
went into the hotspot runtime repository a few days ago:
It should make its way up to jdk7/jdk7/hotspot fairly soon for jdk7
build 30 or 31. I expect that will allow hotspot to build on current
linux distros, but I haven't tried yet.
