This is not in the source tree because it is a generated class,
As you can see in the last call to Javac (the one that fails)

/home/tester/Downloads/jdk1.7.0/bin/javac -g -J-Xmx1g -source 1.7
-classpath /home/tester/vasanth/graal/graal/graal/
graal/ -d /home/tester/vasanth/graal/graal/graal/ -processorpath /home/tester/vasanth/graal/
-s /home/tester/vasanth/graal/graal/graal/
 @/home/tester/vasanth/graal/graal/graal/ -XDignore.symbol.file

There is a "-processorpath" which should activate javac's annotation
processor and generate the proper sources in "/home/tester/vasanth/graal/

The question is why doesn't the annotation processor run.

I tried reproducing in a clean repository with jdk1.7.0_11 and jdk1.7.0_06
and i could not reproduce. I didn't try jdk1.7.0 (update "0") which is what
you seem to be using maybe you can try with a more recent version of the
JDK 7?
