Building IcedTea7 Using BSD option On OS X

I have been able to build IcedTea 7 on OS X.  I removed a bunch of patches
and had to fake some stuff to get it to work.  I wanted to use zero and
shark.  This is the version that prints:
java version "1.7.0_0-fastdebug-bsd"
IcedTea 1.9-pre-rb5fe6c65b574 Runtime Environment (build
OpenJDK Core VM (build 14.0-b08, interpreted mode)

Is this enough to tell if I was able to build with zero and shark?

This is what I used to configure:
./configure --enable-zero
--with-xerces2-jar=/opt/local/share/java/xercesImpl.jar --without-rhino
--disable-liveconnect --with-project=bsd --with-openjdk
--disable-xrender --enable-shark

Some of my issues were because the BSD port is not completely up-to-date
with OpenJDK 7.
