I am seeing 2 different build failures for JDK 8 and JDK 9 on OS X
10.9.3. The configure script fails for both JDK versions.

JDK 8: Fails to recognise the output of /usr/bin/gcc -version (which
is, of course, really a disguised clang). Note that JDK 9 correctly
handles this output and passes this check.

JDK 9: Wants freetype headers, but can't find them. The last time I
saw this being a problem was building OpenJDK 6 on Linux, back in the

Thoughts, anyone?
