Sorry I meant "all versions of jar that we might build with" :)

I think the normal RE process is to build JDK N with the FCS version of 
JDK N-1, which would explain why the old JDK 6 jar is being used. JPRT 
has changes to the bootjdks made "on demand".

As long as we target both 7u and 8 we will be using two different 
toolsets. But I agree that JPRT and RE should be using the same tools. 
That needs to be taken up with RE and Kelly.
