Hi Henri,

All my scripts for building and testing mlvm are here:

They work on my Mac OS X 10.6.8 system.
MLVM is based on jdk8 but also uses a anther specific MLVM patch forest.

I've been meaning to convert them to build dmgs but haven't gotten to it yet.

I know you have been building dmgs. Do you have any  suggestions for me or a pointer to the right section in your script Ican adapt.

Also if anything is helpful in my scripts please use/adapt them of course.
