In jdk/make/CompileJavaClasses.gmk:

You removed 
$(JDK_TOPDIR)/src/closed/$(OPENJDK_TARGET_OS_API_DIR)/classes, but for 
linux and solaris, that source dir is still needed. Is it giving you an 
error when the directory doesn't exist? In that case you will need to 
make it conditional on platform.


If jabswitch is open source, then it shouldn't be built under the 
condition "ifndef OPENJDK".


ifndef OPENJDK


ifndef OPENJDK


ifndef OPENJDK

I would recommend getting an open only forest, apply your patch and 
verify that you get everything built properly.
