Has anyone tried to run SPEC JVM 2008 with open jdk6 (JVM) - built from the
source? I have no problem running jvm2008 from the installed openjdk6, when
it comes to running jvm2008 using the jvm that I built, I am running into
this problem. 
I was trying to run the SPEC JVM 98 with the open jdk6 (JVM) that I built
from the source. 

Built from openjdk source:
sirish at vancouver:~/jvm08/installation$
/home/sirish/school/openjdk/control/build/linux-i586/bin/java -version
openjdk version "1.6.0-internal"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build
OpenJDK Client VM (build 11.0-b17, mixed mode)
sirish at vancouver:~/jvm08/installation$
/home/sirish/school/openjdk/control/build/linux-i586/bin/java -jar
lib/javac.jar -version 
javac 1.6.0-internal

Installed openjdk6:
sirish at vancouver:~/jvm08/installation$
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java -version
java version "1.6.0_0"
OpenJDK  Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_0-b11)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 1.6.0_0-b11, mixed mode, sharing)
sirish at vancouver:~/jvm08/installation$
/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java -jar lib/javac.jar -version
javac 1.7.0-opensource

Has anyone seen this error. I had downloaded the JVM 2008 from the spec
website. And there was this known bug issue for javac.

The problem boils down to this point. Why is java -jar lib/javac.jar
-version giving different results. Should that command just run the Main
class from javac.jar -verision - which in this case is javac.
