Ok, thanks!

What I do is copying a working version from my openjdk installation to the expected location, so the build won't complain but actually I have no clue whats going on there. JamVM probably has the same problem, so I mostly hope for a good suggestion from your side, what should be done here.
I managed to work around this issue by creating a symbolic-link from to the jamvm
As can be seen in this changeset:
I will try do the same for cacao.
