Thanks. It could be. If it is, it's some file which isn't tracked and
causes issues. Having said that, I doubt it's that.

This works:

$ make JAVAC_FLAGS=-g DISABLE_INTREE_EC=true images

This doesn't:

$ make JAVAC_FLAGS=-g DISABLE_INTREE_EC=true LOG=debug images

So in summary it's:
- related to JDK-8210958
- possibly related to the toolchain on Fedora 28
- related to debug logging of the build:
  LOG=debug or LOG=trace fail. Default LOG doesn't.

I'm collecting info as I know more in:
