Hi all.

I'm just starting to look at the Graal compiler and I'm excited about 
the possibilities.

In the OpenJDK project page, it mentions a requirement for OSX Lion. 
What's the reason for that? Is it strictly a need for Java 1.7?

I got 1.7 installed on Snow Leopard and doing an "mx build" gives the 

Error: could not find libjava.dylib

Error: Could not find Java SE Runtime Environment.

*** An XSLT processor (J2SE 1.4.x or newer) is required to bootstrap 
this build
