JDK10 build problem: "--module-path"?

I’m getting a weird error in my OpenJDK 10 (tip) build, where after pulling source and configure, I get a build error about the Java compiler being executed with “--module-path” as a parameter, which obviously isn’t a legitimate javac flag.


Is this just me? Is anybody else able to repro this, and is there a fix coming that isn’t checked into the main trunk yet?


I am in the process of finalizing some Docker images (both with the source inside the image and built, so people can just “go”, as well as images with the prereqs and some shell scripts to do the build with the source and build artifacts on the host machine), and this is holding up the current “tip” images from being really ready for public consumption. (JDK8u and JDK9 are up and ready to go.)
