Thanks for this.  I think I should clarify what I mean by a supported
platform.  This would be a platform for which bugs affecting the ability
to build a working OpenJDK binary for that platform would be considered
valid by the OpenJDK community and a user-submitted patch to fix such a
bug would be considered for integration into the OpenJDK codebase.
