Fwd: Need help to resolve build errors on Mac os x

After cloning jdk8/tl you need to cd to the new clone and run:

$ sh ./get_sources.sh

to get the whole forest. Then you need to run configure
(sh ./configure) and then only can you call make images.

Hope this helps,

(and BTW you may need to install Xcode & its command line tools
  as well as XQuartz if you haven't done so already)
