On Solaris the HS_ALT_MAKE variable was not passed to vm.make when creating the
mapfiles which lead to mapfile-ext not being found and later a linker error due
to symbols declared in the extra mapfile not being found.
The hotspot makefiles are .. interesting .. yes.
The proposed solution is to include defs.make where HS_ALT_MAKE is set up into
vm.make on Solaris.
This is a P1 so if you feel comfortable with the hotspot makefiles, please have
More information about the build-dev
