It seems like X11 is included with Lion: http://www.apple.com/macosx/apps/all.html#x11 I haven't installed it separately either and the JDK builds fine.

It seems like Apple has dropped the "Mac" part of "Mac OS X" and now only call the product "OS X Lion" . Question is if this is only a marketing term or if it's now the official name. In this webrev I've used "Mac OS X".

I do not think it is part of the base install of the Dev Tools, it is not separately downloadable (so I need to try to find those @#$%@&! DVDs) and it is not a command-line tool. Or is it part of what you get with that install option? I am still on SnowLeopard, so I do not know. And I cannot build the JDK for lack of freetype, which seems to come with X11.
