What is the Build Process for Codes inside jdk/src/macosx/native/jobjc

These sources are indeed treated separately. I don't actually know why,
but they were in the old build. (There the native was compiled as an
XCode project and the java code with Ant). When converting to the new
build, we strived to keep differences in build output to a minimum. This
means that the library libJObjC is built as both 32 and 64 bit and
packaged as a universal binary. The java source for this is compiled
with source/target 1.5 for the same reason. Now that equality with the
old build is no longer a requirement, I would welcome the removal of
this and moving the source to more standard locations.
To see how it's done, look in jdk/makefiles/CompileNativeLibraries.gmk
and CompileJavaClasses.gmk and search for jobjc.
