Is --with-openjdk-src-dir working properly?

I tried to build IcedTea with my local copy of the build-infra forest,
using the following configure command line:
./configure --disable-system-lcms --with-openjdk-src-dir=../build-infra-jdk8
However, the build fails when applying patches; I tried removing the
patches individually (just to see if I could continue compiling, a bit
quick and dirty) but it seems that *all* patches consistently fails.
Furthermore, patch gives an error message like:
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file
However, there is no reject file at the given path. I almost get the
impression there is some kind of permission problem. However, all
permissions is correct, and I can edit the files in question without
problems from an editor.
I noticed that the source is not actually copied, but hard-linked by:
cp -pPR -l ../build-infra-jdk8 openjdk
I'm not very used to working with hard links. Could this be the cause of
Or to state the problem differently, has anyone used
--with-openjdk-src-dir recently and can confirm that it is working?
