Hi Andrew,

Is it possible that this issue be fixed in 8u222?
Or shall we just update the README to work around it like this:
diff -r c52bf8887eb0 README
--- a/README    Tue Apr 16 21:59:20 2019 +0100
+++ b/README    Thu Apr 25 17:49:36 2019 +0800

    2. Configure the build:
-       bash ./configure
+       bash ./configure --with-extra-cflags=-Wno-error

    3. Build the OpenJDK:
         make all

What's your next plan?

Best regards,
