Hi Ray

I just try the build on my 10.5.8, everything is fine.

This is the command I run:

ALT_BINARY_PLUGS_PATH=/Users/octo/java/jdk-7-icedtea-plugs \
ALT_CUPS_HEADERS_PATH=/usr/include \
ALT_BOOTDIR=/Users/octo/java/soylatte16-i386-1.0.3/ \
ALT_FREETYPE_HEADERS_PATH=/opt/local/include/ \
ALT_FREETYPE_LIB_PATH=/opt/local/lib \

In fact, the last line in your build has -L/usr/X11/lib, but on my  
machine, it's -L/usr/X11R6/lib, and I do have something nice here:

$ ls /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.*
/usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.6.2.0.dylib	/usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.dylib
/usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.6.dylib		/usr/X11R6/lib/
