We're using 10.6 machines to build 32 and 64bits OpenJDK 7 VM.

I guess we should find 10.5 machine to build OpenJDK 6 for 10.5
systems (x86 & PPC).
Advices welcome.

Both are importants :)

Even with the new OS/X Port for OpenJDK 1.7, we plan to keep our
continuous build to provide Java 7 VM very often.
