Just built jdk8/tl (without any patching) on my 10.6.8 system.

Build completes fine.

jtreg testing of jdk/test/java/lang/invoke/ passes.

Testing with SwingSet2.jar fails:

/build/macosx-amd64/j2sdk-bundle/1.8.0.jdk/Contents/Home/bin/java -jar /Developer/Extras/Java/JFC/SwingSet2/SwingSet2.jar

Exception in thread "main" java.awt.HeadlessException
	at sun.java2d.HeadlessGraphicsEnvironment.getDefaultScreenDevice(HeadlessGraphicsEnvironment.java:77)
	at SwingSet2.main(SwingSet2.java:251)

My build settings:


Which expands into:

make LANG=C LP64=1 OPENJDK=true ALLOW_DOWNLOADS=true SA_APPLE_BOOT_JAVA=true ALWAYS_PASS_TEST_GAMMA=true ALT_BOOTDIR=/Users/stephen/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.7.0_04-2012_03_04.jdk/Contents/Home HOTSPOT_BUILD_JOBS=4
