> quotes) and vm_version.cpp using the XSTR macro to convert the value of
> VENDOR into a C string. The -DVENDOR argument is also given to libjava,
> where System.c does not apply a similar conversion, so it requires the
> double quotes to be supplied on the command line.
> I found the simplest solution for unifying the behavior between libjvm
> and libjava to be to remove the XSTR macro call in vm_version.cpp.

Er ... the follow-on bug report is:

Looks good.
