Perhaps I don't understand what this process is suppose to accomplish.  I
thought it was to allow building of icedtea/opendjk using classpath/cacao
(instead of apple's jdk).  So, I have classpath installed and configured to
use cacaovm, but during the icedtea build process it downloads cacao and
tries to build it.  The build fails since there is linux specific code in:
jvm.c:3719:3: error: #error not implemented for this OS

I don't know why this did not happen when I built it manually.

So, does this mean that it is trying to build cacao instead of the openjdk
