I'll wait to get OSX code in master :-)

Thanks Alan for the explanation

The webrev that Michael sent a link to is just part of the process to get the changes agreed before he pushes it to the jdk8/tl forest, something that I hope will happen within a few days. All going well it should mean the Mac port should get to the jdk8 master in a few weeks (exactly when it's clearly but I assume it will bake in jdk8/tl for a bit).

Once you do that then the build is the same as jdk7u except that you need a jdk7 build as the bootstrap JDK. Like Stuart and John, I grabbed the patches and attempted to get jdk8/tl to build. It worked for me and I didn't run into the issues with the gamma launcher. In my case, I used a local build of jdk7/jdk7u-dev as the bootstrap JDK. It will be interesting to hear how you get on.
