I'm in the same boat as you. I tried a few different ways to get the
MLVM patches to apply to the BSD ported OpenJDK and simply couldn't make
it go. There's files that don't exist or have moved, and significant
changes to many others.
I think we need to get an update on the status of the BSD patchset with
more recent OpenJDK builds. A large part of the reason why I haven't
been continuing to play with MLVM recently (outside of resource
limitations) is that I can't run it natively on OS X yet.
If you do talk to BSD guys, keep us posted :)
