Hello Jessica,

If you attached the patch to your mail, the openjdk mail list server 
probably removed it. If the change is small, you can post it inline in 
the mail, but normally we upload a webrev on a public webserver and link 
it in the mail.

If the --with-alsa option is used to point the build to the ALSA library from a specific directory instead of using the system default location, the JDK component will fail to build due to an incorrect -l parameter being passed to ld and result in this error:
