I don't think you need to add it in both places. By setting it on the 
command-line you augment any value set in the Makefile.

Looks like your X11 header files are not in the usual/expected place. 
Try setting ALT_OPENWIN_HOME to point to the "root" of your X11 headers. 
Grep for ALT_OPENWIN_HOME to see what the expected location is.

No, in the jdk repository (as opposed to the hotspot repository) the 
"solaris" directory tree actually means "non-Windows" or "unix-like". 
ifdefs are then used for solaris and linux specific code.

> advice would be appreciated
