Sorry but it doesn't make any sense.  I guess you are patching this:

# Platform settings specific to BSD
ifeq ($(PLATFORM), bsd)
  OS_VERSION := $(shell uname -r)
  # Arch and OS name/version
  mach := $(shell uname -m)
  archExpr = case "$(mach)" in \
                i[3-9]86) \
                    echo i586 \
                    ;; \
                *) \
                    echo $(mach) \
                    ;; \
  ARCH        := $(shell $(archExpr) )

Unless "UNAME_m" environment variable is set, there is no way that 
this patch does anything at all.

% uname -r
% uname -m
% env UNAME_m=x86_64 uname -m

I believe OpenJDK7 added it because some BSDs (e.g., DragonFlyBSD) 
return x86_64 for "uname -m".

BTW, does "make DISABLE_MAKE_JOBS=yes" make any difference?
