Nice. This sounds very useful. How "portable" is the result? Is it
completely self-contained or do the tools depend on some of the internal
openjdk library implementations (can I use them with gcj for example)?
I think it would be a nice addition to the icedtea build system if you
can make it easy to integrate. IcedTea is already kind of a build
harness for openjdk, if there is an option to easily build just the
tools with it that would be helpful imho, if only for those people who
just want to hack on and build the tools. Or maybe the openjdk
tools-group (is there such a thing?) would be interested. Although I
believe Dalibor already had a plan of autoconfiscating javac and the
team said they already had enough different build options. Alternatively
if nobody want to integrate your patches we can always create a new repo
(icepick) for you to make it easy to publish your stuff and have a
Any patches or source available?
