Hi Tim,

In compile.make:

Please update copyright end year to 2013 (hotspot-runtime process rule).

I'm wondering what the impact is of not being able to use 
_STATIC_CPPLIB? Given it has been deprecated for a while was it actually 
a no-op? We need to understand what impact this has, if any, on the 
built bits.


In sanity.make:

Please update copyright end year to 2013


In vm.make this addition seems unrelated to a compiler change:

   !ifdef RELEASE
+ !ifdef DEVELOP
+ !else
+ !endif

What is a RELEASE+DEVELOP build? Further I would expect that any build 
that sets DEBUG should also set ASSERT ??


In unwind_windows_x86.hpp

Please update copyright end year to 2013


I'd be happy to sponsor the push into hotspot-rt once this is finalized. 
Just create the changeset and send me a link to it.
