To clarify this --disable-bootstrap configuration option are only supported by the icedtea6 1.9.x release and later.

unrelated, bug 631 are not related to the 1.8.x branch at all it was a 1.9 release bug. please file a new bug if you are seeing issues with the 1.8 branch.
For the 1.8.x release branch a similar option existed to build icedtea6 without first building a bootstrap compiler using gcj/ecj but here under a different name:
here you have to specify --with-openjdk to configure

Building the bootstrap compiler (openjdk-ecj) using system installed icedtea6 instead of gcj/ecj are to my knowledge not supported on the icedtea6 branch.
For IcedTea7 things are much cleaner but we still are not able to build the openjdk-bootstrap using icedtea6 see bug:
Cheers and have a great day.
