I'm not sure why. Building OpenJDK from source isn't exactly something
that is done by normal users. If someone is willing to hack on the OpenJDK
code base, I would assume they know about -Werror and similar options and
how to control them.

I mean, yes, you can change that to have -Werror turned off by default,
but having the compiler complain less is usually a bad idea.
