I tried installing this on my i386 FreeBSD-CURRENT SMP box (2007-08-04
06:32 UTC) using diablo-jdk15 as bootstrap. The build first failed
because of GCC 4.2 warnings-as-errors about deprecated string
conversions. After commenting out a -Werror in
work/hotspot/build/bsd/makefiles/gcc.make , the hotspot-fastdebug server
built fine, but it failed in test_gamma. I've attached the hs_err log.
I know CURRENT is not supported, but jkim@ somehow managed to build it
on an amd64 box.
