That doesn't seem to have been Per's problem (as he completed a build with
selinux turned off) but your comment worries me a little. Is there a plan
to update OpenJDK6 so it will still be able to build 7? Otherwise that's
going to be a bootstrapping issue. I expect, with 7 stabilising, we'll
see more people wanting to build it over the coming months and having to
build an old version of 7 first is going to make things overcomplicated.
