JavaFX fails to build with multiple different issues

So here is an odd one: JavaFX is now longer building on Arch Linux even
on a previous source directory that did compile just fine. I'm guessing
that something was updated and isn't compatible with JavaFX's build
scripts but I'm not entirely sure what exactly it is.
(Note: just to make sure the files didn't magically become corrupt or
something I redownloaded from the Github mirror. Same issue.)
First error is this:
118: The variable [files] is declared final but is reassigned
. At [118:21] @ line 118, column 21.
files += file;
which is easy enough to fix by simply removing final from line 105. Even
though this was clearly an issue(why use final on local variables? I've
never understood why people do it...), I'm not entirely sure why it's
throwing an error now. Is it because Groovy is a scripting language and
the build scripts never used to follow that logic path?
Next issue is this:
> Could not get unknown property 'moduleEmptyPublicationJarLinux' for
task set of type org.gradle.api.internal.tasks.DefaultTaskContainer
which I'm not sure on how to resolve. Thinking that it may be related to
my custom built JDK I tried swapping it out for an older one that I know
worked before and yet it fails all the same.
