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.
