Hello all;

Currently the parameter passed to configure --with-bootjdk-jvmargs is ignored. This changeset improves(*) the handling of the args.


I also cleaned up the defaults slightly to better capture the intent of the tests. ie. check for host OS build bits rather than specific platforms.

JAVA_FLAGS in the spec.gmk.in was previously defined by AC_SUBST from the BOOT_JDK_JVMARGS value. It is now AC_SUBST from JAVA_FLAGS though both JAVA_FLAGS and BOOT_JDK_JVMARGS currently have the same value.

(*) It is reasonable to debate whether defaults applied by the configure script should be inserted in BOOTJDK_SETUP_BOOT_JDK_ARGUMENTS as JVM flags. The heap maximum size and stack size will hopefully be revisited via JDK-8007327
