I've reproduced John's error on 10.6.8 applying webrev.4 on top of jdk8/tl.
Am setting ALT_BOOTDIR to 1.7.0_04 as built from jdk7u-dev on Mar 4.
Here's what -Xinternalversion reports from that build:
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (23.0-b16) for bsd-amd64
built on Mar 4 2012 02:23:33 by "stephen" with gcc 4.2.1
(Based on Apple Inc. build 5658) (LLVM build 2335.6)
This is how I setup the repo, applied patches and initiated the build:
The error occurs running ./test_gamma:
echo "Doing vm.make build:"
Doing vm.make build:
cd bsd_amd64_compiler2/product && ./test_gamma
Using java runtime at: /Users/stephen/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.7.0_04-2012_03_04.jdk/Contents/Home/jre
Error occurred during initialization of VM
at java.lang.System.initProperties(Native Method)
