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

I'm wrapping my head around gnu autoconfigure tonight.
It looks like we need to modify the .m4 files in the common/autoconf
directory and then it generates the generated-configure.sh script from
there, right? If that's the case, I can start working on patches to the
*.m4 files to seed the diffs you sent from generated-configure.sh if you
are OK with that (I know we need to wait until my userid shows up on the
contributor list before we can do any of this officially).
Next question - how much can we mess with the default "bsd" stuff? Should
we be doing specific things in an "openbsd" block so as not to mess up the
FreeBSD port (my assumption is that this mercurial tree builds successfully
under FreeBSD - right)? I'm thinking that's how we should be operating.
If you are ok with that, i'll start making the necessary changes to get the
common things in "bsd" and the things that are unique to OpenBSD in their
I think I can get the freetype stuff fixed (if I'm following the *.m4 files
correctly) as well as the location for giflib straightened out.
Finally, the myriad of --with* settings on the command line I'm guessing
need to be baked into the *.m4 scripts if we are running on in OpenBSD? If
so, then I can tackle getting that to work right.
What do you think? Am I on the right track?
