Hi Rene,

I just did a fresh clone and build and it succeeded for me, so now we have to figure out what the difference is.

> I started with building OpenJDK 8

This might be the first issue, I've always built against the dev preview builds of JDK 8, not OpenJDK 8. I tried to sort this out with Mario Torre a month back but didn't get to the bottom of it.

> Now I am trying to build OpenJFX. I have gone past the hurdle of the Gradle buiildfile requiring a JDK build number larger than 100 - I set this to 0 and it happily trucks on

I assume you were using the very latest OpenJDK 8 though?

This is most likely bailing when looking for plugin.jar (which isn't part of OpenJDK). I believe this is just because the code is looking for JSObject. If you edit build.gradle and take out the plugin dependency, you can see where the build fails and why without it.
