Careful with this. The jdk7u builds/makefiles probably still need a 10.7 system.
With no access to JPRT sources anymore, I can't remember all details, but just declaring 10.8 systems
able to build 10.7 might not work for jdk7u jobs. Can't remember if I had a solution for this,
kind of expected the jdk7u makefiles to get changed, but I kind of doubt that happened. :^(
