The backport of JDK-8043340 should have resolved this, this was done in time for 8u40.
In short: don't use --with-tools-dir, use --with-xcode-path instead.
There was a later fix to hotspot for building on Yosemite but it was too late for 8u40:
date: Wed Mar 18 18:12:01 2015 -0700
summary: 8075400: Cannot build hotspot in jdk8u on OSX 10.10 (Yosemite)
You can try applying that to your workspace and see if it helps.
