This comes from hotspot build. The FDS processing happens in a file that 
is included a number of times due to the nested make invocations that 
happen with hotspot. Consequently this gets repeated a few times 
(actually fewer than it used to) for each JVM built.

I think we should change this so that is only triggered when a more 
verbose logging level is requested - and try to find a way to only 
report it once.

I will file a bug.
