Hmmm, I see this is the case with OpenJDK7 but OpenJDK6 still has
src/share/native/com/sun/corba/se/internal/io/ioser.c. The patch
originated on 6, where presumably the fix was needed.
To be honest, it seems strange that CORBA doesn't just use the JDK
version of Defs-linux.gmk especially when the JDK version is prefixed
+# WARNING: This file is shared with other workspaces.
+# So when it includes other files, it must use JDK_TOPDIR.
Surely these days the only 'other workspaces' to which this applies
are the CORBA and HotSpot ones.

Too true, e.g. each compilation warns 'value of JDK_IMPORT_PATH cannot
be empty, check or set ALT_JDK_IMPORT_PATH' when it is perfectly
possible to build without this set.
I was under the understanding that it was maintained as part of
Glassfish so have avoided going near the OpenJDK copy where possible.
What's the situation there?
