| Is anyone successfully building a 64-bit version of the latest source on Snow Leopard with Apple's JDK 6?  I can build a 32-bit version using the Soylatte v1.0.3 32-bit binaries, but I can't successfully build any version of OpenJDK using Apple's JDK 6.
| I tried following along with without success (see below).  After patching to fully qualify both references to, my langtools build fails during the -def-genstubs Ant target because of an apparent API inconsistency between Apple's and what OpenJDK expects.
| Might it be possible to work around this problem by pruning the list of jars on the bootclasspath when invoking Apple's javac, or prepending the OpenJDK build output directory containing JCTree to the bootclasspath?  Are there any Make variables I can use to explicitly override the bootclasspath?

| ERROR: FreeType version  2.3.0  or higher is required. \n /Users/sl4mmy/Work/openjdk/build/bsd-amd64/btbins/freetype_versioncheck
| Failed to build freetypecheck.  \n

Are you using the correct version of jibx?
