Thank you very much! That did the trick!

Now I have added enough fixes to build-infra/jdk8 so that it actually
builds everything
on my mac. (Though not sctp for the moment.) What is left is to get
the linking parameters for
the java launcher (and the other launchers) right. They link, but do not work.
