To my knowledge, and as best as I can recall, Dan has specifically
said he's never compiled the JDK. So he is just guessing (though
his guesses are better than most peoples best educated response).

However, DJ and I compile the JDK in *every* build we do. And we
don't have issues. So, I would have to say that we've reached a
point where I'm going to build the JDK tonight, comparing my
build script with what is in the book.

If they are the same (which I think they are), and it builds
without issue, then we've got to start exploring something else
other than guessing with some seds and other stuff that nobody
else needs.

I hope this makes sense. But if one Editor of the book is going
to suggest that we start doing seds to the sources of the JDK,
while a couple of other Editors don't need to do them, this is
a serious conflict we need to resolve (not between the Editors,
but with what is going wrong for you).

I will post my results tomorrow, as it is late for me now.
