You mean that that line used to end up referring to something that came
with an Xcode installation, but was otherwise not present? I do have
a /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework. Probably that is what the
above entry was supposed to point to, but as the location of the java
binary changed at some point, that relative path does not work any longer?
Maybe using a relative path here is pointless even? This code is
over-complicated, patches to simplify it are more than welcome;)

Yep. It is used in configure.ac to set up a JAVA_HOME environment variable
for *build-time* use. Whether that is strictly necessary or not, I have no
idea. (IMHO it might be cleaner if at build-time the same automated
mechanism was used to find the JVM to use as at LibreOffice run-time.)
