I'm trying to build openjdk6 on amd64 8.1-RELEASE, and I'm getting
build errors.  I did make config and turned on the WEB option, then make.

One error went away when I installed libXtst, but there's another near
the end of the build when it's trying to build icedtea and it can't
find nsThreadUtils.h.  That appears to be a firefox36 file, and I see
it's installed, but the includes are messed up or something.

Any suggestions?
