I'm getting there.  I found that I can't do a sed on the paths because 
the files are not exposed until after make extracts the downloaded 
tarballs.  The patch still works though.

The build is OK, but there are still lots of test failures.  I'm doing a 
rebuild now in a different screen.

BTW, what do we call this version.  It's icedtea-2.3.3, but the build says:

java version "1.7.0_0"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0-b36)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.2-b09, mixed mode)

Right now we are calling the current version OpenJDK-, but the 
most recent version does not seem to fall into that naming convention.
