Source: openjdk-9
Version: 9~b177-3
Severity: normal


openjdk-9 currently FTBFS on architectures which exclusively rely on the Zero
VM. This happens because the JVM segfaults during build at some point [1].

The exact reason for the segmentation fault has not been discovered yet, but
we know that building with "--with-debug-level=slowdebug" instead of "=release"
resolves the issue.

Thus, I suggest building openjdk-9 on Zero-only architectures for the time
being as a work-around.
