But the order might be important.
When we completely re-write the makefile logic, the BSD/MAC makefile changes will not be of any
value. But if we see these changes first, we can make sure the new makefile logic works for it.
The jigsaw/modularity changes to the build system is a bit further off, and it's not clear how this
will impact the build changes we have planned, but the general feeling is that it will be much better
in the new world since we want to try and build the java packages in parallel, with different destinations,
which should be better for modular builds.
