It sounds to me like there's a bug there; those files should be being
dealt with earlier in the build or as part of java/net/Makefile.

If they aren't implictly compiled from the source tree, then presumably
classes from the bootstrap runtime library will be used if present, which
could cause all sorts of issues.
