Hi - is there a group of people working on OpenJDK 8 for OpenBSD?

Awesome. Thanks Kurt & Christos.
I pulled down the openjdk8 source last night and tried to get it to
compile. My initial problems were:
1. Weird error with gmake 4.0 so I had to downgrade to 3.81 to fix that
2. Antlr was being looked for in a specific directory with a specific
version of a JAR file so I had to override that
3. I hit an out of memory error on the C compiler
#3 was a showstopper for me. I am on a system with 16 GB of physical RAM
and a 32 GB swapfile so I'm really confused by this.
Let me wipe the directory, grab fresh source and get a step by step to the
point where I'm stuck. Then we can all be on the same page and maybe
figure this out.
