Is com.sun.script.util meant to be a supported/documented API? Do you 
know if anything outside of the JDK is using it? Is Nashorn using it? 
The only usage I see is in com.sun.script.javascript so this is why I 
assumed that com.sun.script.** would go away.

As you know, we moved javax.script to compact1. It doesn't require 
com.sun.script.util of course but if this is used by 3rd party scripting 
engines then it may have to be added to compact1 builds to get them working.

"make profiles" on Linux should be fine. As part of the profiles build 
it will run a dependency analyzer that checks for references to types 
that do not exist (this is catch configuration issues).
