yeah, I see that.

yepp, that's there.
... so make in patches is supposed to do the setup only... because it
seemed to me that it is doing much more than just that.

well, for the jdk build I set ALT_BOOTDIR, ALT_BINARY_PLUGS_PATH,
ALT_JIBX_LIBS_PATH. And then working the JVM works well in sources. but
that was no problem, since the build instructions for the jdk work

thanks... but this seems to say, that all the patches got applied. And
then that means that for me the mlvm is not working at all. Even simple
things won't do.
strange... all of a sudden I get a compilation error:
