Just realized this was sent to hotspot-dev (attempting bcc) but is not a
hotspot issue. With your new approach this is a build issue so cc'ing
The new approach seems better to me but build folk need to confirm the

Personally I think this is borken as it causes builds to fail (and not just OpenJDK, several other projects have had the same build failure - try googling the above error message). But we are stuck with gcc as it is.
