The configure script does set a few variables in the spec.gmk file that is used but the hotspot repo.
(It does read the spec.gmk file)

We did forget about STATIC_CXX though, it should  be added to spec.gmk and set appropriately,
then the hotspot makefile that looks at it should be adjusted, because now it only allows
STATIC_CXX to be set using the command line.
