You're going to have trouble.
1. OpenJDK is not set up to cross-compile.
It builds its tools natively. Fixing this would be nice, but a
2. Assuming you're happy to use the C++ interpeter, it should already
build on ARM if you're using the IcedTea build harness.
3. Although I can get it to build, and it does work, it still
doesn't run stably. I don't know why this is.
Did you want to do a real port, with a template interpreter, or a
JIT, or did you just want the C++ interpreter?
