requirements for building on Mac?

I am seeing differing statements about what is needed to build jdk7u-dev. Which is correct?
The page at http://code.google.com/p/openjdk-osx-build/ says "Packages built on SnowLeopard (10.6) and tested on SnowLeopard (10.6) and Lion (10.7)."
The page at https://wikis.oracle.com/display/OpenJDK/Mac+OS+X+Port says "Prerequisites to build... Mac OS X 10.7.3."
And when I actually try to build on 10.6.8 (using the instructions on https://wikis.oracle.com/display/OpenJDK/Mac+OS+X+Port), I get:
ERROR: FreeType version 2.3.0 or higher is required.
/bin/mkdir -p /Users/ray/Projects/openjdk/jdk7u-dev/build/macosx-amd64/btbins
rm -f /Users/ray/Projects/openjdk/jdk7u-dev/build/macosx-amd64/btbins/freetype_versioncheck
Failed to build freetypecheck.
Exiting because of the above error(s).
make: *** [post-sanity] Error 1
So, should I try to get around this error, or is building on 10.6 just not going to work? And if it should work, should this be stated on the wikis.oracle.com page?
I had been able to build a couple of months ago. But perhaps the landscape is changing?
thanx - ray
