Fwd: JDK build on Mountain Lion

I don't know why we build xawt on OS X - at least by default.
We don't use X11 for UI in our JDK on Mac and I'm 99% sure its not 
getting tested.
Building the XAWT toolkit on OS X perhaps should be an optional selection

I had to set it with "CPATH" environment variable. Maybe this is something that JDK build script could help.
