      Description

      Allows people to make Java source changes and re-build without C/C++ compilations

      The idea is to import the pre-built libraries (*.so's and DLL's) just like the it does now for Hotspot VM. Using the location JDK_IMPORT_PATH (or your own ALT_JDK_IMPORT_PATH setting) as the source of the built libraries. It would be important that this JDK binary match what you are building and also that you aren't changing any of the native interfaces. If this worked, a C/C++ compiler might not even be necessary for anyone just making changes to Java source files.
