OpenJDK 7 build fails on Snow Leopard

Thanks for the tip, Mike.  I suppose this is the compiler you mean:  / 

I can't resist asking:  Will code from llvm-gcc work better with / 
Developer/usr/bin/gdb ?  (Obviously I'm hoping for an easy fix.)

The stack alignment logic on function entry, which gdb appears not to  
know about, makes it hopelessly confused about arguments.  One  
developer I know just switched back to Solaris from Mac because of this.
