        Description

        I used to be able to build JDK 9 on ja_JP.UTF-8 locale, but build process recently started failing.

        Generated .java files in build/.../corba/gensrc/com/sun/corba/se/spi/activation/ contain some
        localized comments, and they started causing compilation errors.


        Using C locale to build JDK is clearly mentioned in jdk/make/netbeans/README. But if it is a mandatory requirement, it should be mentioned in README-builds.html in the top directory of JDK workspace.

        This is reproducible on Linux and MacOS. I haven't tried on other platforms nor other non-English locales.
