David Holmes said the following on 04/28/11 15:50:
> Simple but crude. If OPENJDK is defined then the Hotspot "alternative 
> source" mechanism is effectively disabled by checking for a non-existent 
> path. This allows people using the alt-src mechanism to select which 
> type of build they want in a way that is consistent with how builds of 
> OPENJDK are done in the rest of the JDK.
> Tested by checking the "errorReporter.cpp" location in builds 
> with/without OPENJDK set, and with/without src/closed present.
> This will be pushed into hotspot-rt/hotspot for hs21-b11
> Thanks,
> David
