Sometimes mercurial forests can get messed up. If an unmodified source 
fails to compile after dist-clean, this can be the case. One thing to to 
is to try and re-clone the forest. Make sure runs to 
completion without any errors.

Otherwise, you have narrowed down the issue quite well. We need to 
figure out why interim_langtools.jar is not being built.

Start by rm -rf build && configure.

Then run "make interim-langtools". Check the contents of 
build/$BUILD/buildtools. Is it there? If so, you should be able to do 
just "make" and continue.

Otherwise, start again with more logging. rm -rf build && configure && 
make interim-langtools LOG=debug  (trace is not being helpful).
