Building OpenJDK 8 on macOS 10.12 - Path provided in --with-xcode-path not being used to locate Xcode?

I'm trying to build OpenJDK 8 on macOS 10.12, and having some trouble
getting it to accept the path to Xcode.

    $ ./configure "--with-xcode-path=$HOME/DevEnv/Applications/Xcode4/"

    checking Determining if we need to set DEVELOPER_DIR... yes
    checking for xcodebuild...

    configure: error: Xcode 4 is required to build JDK 8, the version
found was 8.2.1. Use --with-xcode-path to specify the location of
Xcode 4 or make Xcode 4 active by using xcode-select.

    configure exiting with result code 1

>From the DEVELOPER_DIR line, it seems like the option has been
accepted, but then it immediately ignores the setting for xcodebuild
and fails with the version being wrong...
