>> The Java source was being built and included in rt.jar, but it would not run because jdk/src/macosx/native/apple/launcher/JavaAppLauncher.m (implementing the two native methods) was not being built so it would have died with an UnsatisfiedLinkError. The Xcode project is not referenced anywhere in any makefile I looked at.

Ah, ok. It wasn't explicitly listed in the makefiles so I made an assumption. In any case, removing it causes no build or runtime failures that I can tell.
