Hello Stanislav,

What do you want to achieve by setting VERBOSE=1? AFAIK that has never 
been a valid value for the VERBOSE input variable. In jdk8, we initially 
introduced VERBOSE as an input variable to the new build system. It was 
default set to "-s" to make the build quiet, but if you wanted command 
lines echoed, you used "make VERBOSE=". That was later superseded by the 
LOG input variable, which is set to a log level like "info, warn, debug, 
trace". In jdk9, we completely removed support for the VERBOSE input
