One Reply to “Help Wanted”

  1. Landon Fuller posted some instructions for building OpenJDK on FreeBSD and Mac OSX a while back[1]. The big hurdle is bootstrapping the build process with another JDK, the FreeBSD build uses the java/diablo-jdk16 port. Jikes could possibly be used for compiling, but I think it then requires actually running the code, GCJ is generally not a good substitute. It could possibly be bootstrapped in some emulation mode, which is if I remember correctly how the OpenBSD port used to work. It also requires Mecurial, which I’ve had problems installing on DragonFly, but I’m assuming others have not. With a few tweaks this might work, however I’m not very familiar with DragonFly yet, so I might need a few pointers as to the right way to go about things.
