How can I see where the sjavac_server is started?

I'm seeing a crash in the javac server while building openjdk.

I want to run the exact same command that started the server running,
but even with LOG=debug I cannot find the command line that starts
it. The command seems not to be there at all.

So, how exactly does the javac server get started, and how do I find
the command line that started it?

And, incidentally, given that I'f configured with --disable-sjavac,
why is the build running a javac server? Thanks.
