Compile fails in JDK8

Hi all ,

I'm hoping someone can help me out with the following error when attempting
to build in JDK8 forest on RHEL 6.5 ...

error: sun_misc_Signal.h: No such file or directory
gmake[2]: *** [/home/dpointo8/sandbox/jcl-bin/jdk/objs/libjava/Signal.o]
Error 1
gmake[2]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
gmake[2]: Leaving directory
gmake[1]: *** [libs-only] Error 2
gmake[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [jdk-only] Error 2
make images failed, aborting...

I've looked thro' the whole of the forest and the header file is nowhere to
be found and neither is it to be found anywhere else on the compile host,
so the question is, can anyone tell me from where this file originates ?

cost and before we we judge rightly of our strength to go thro' with it -
