Well, I'd say that we should allow for the replacement of the Hotspot VM
repo with another VM. However, I'd rather advocate for forcing the
other VM to conform to the existing JDK's build setup, rather than hack
the JDK build config to support any other VM.
That is, if the JDK build system can be relatively generic enough, then
any VM conforming to the generic build setup should be fine. However, I
think we want to avoid including any specific build customizations.
I know we have a non-trivial number of seemingly customized
environmental values - I think we could genericize them better and try
to contain references to them in the specific component that is
relevant. I don't want to see more any more component-specific stuff
than absolutely necessary.
