Thus spake Jon Kuster (kwsn at [22/04/05 02:55]:
: After you restart the build, it might hang again with your java problem
: - it did for me once.  All I can say is kill it, do a make clean,
: reapply the patch, and start the build again.

This is the problem that, for whatever reason, using WITH_IPV6 fixed for me.
For the life of me, I couldn't get past that point without it defined (javac
processes hung around like unwanted guests at an open bar wedding
reception).  As soon as I defined WITH_IPV6, it built just fine.  And I ran
a few test builds afterwards (before installing, so I was still using the
Linux JDK), and defining it always made the difference.

: On the bright side, once
: you do manage to get jdk15 built and installed, it should be quite
: stable.  We haven't been able to get our to fail yet on UP or SMP with a
: -j12 buildworld going on in the background.

Same here.  Even though it's marked alpha, it's been *remarkably* stable.
