The corba fails to build because it seemingly can't find the most basic 
things ...

## Starting corba
Compiling 6 files for BUILD_LOGUTIL
error: cannot access Object
public class InputException {
   class file for java.lang.Object not found

I do wonder if the image being specified in the --with-import-hotspot & 
--with-boot-jdk options is lacking in some respect ... like the language 
fundamentals perhaps ? Is there a definition of the expected composition 
of any external hotspot &/or boot JDK ?

They [my builds] didn't explicitly set OPENJDK, but having now done so 
(to both 'true' and then 'false' in turn), the outcome is unchanged.
