This mailing list is for jvm development. Some of us here can barely
spell jdk let alone build it (speaking for myself certainly). I think
you probably want to ask this on build-dev at openjdk.java.net
In addition I think all the mailing lists moved from
... at openjdk.dev.java.net to ... at openjdk.java.net as of JavaOne so
people might want to update address books.
