Thanks a lot for the Java 9 FTBFS analysis! I got a quick look at this
javadoc issue, javadoc became more strict wrt to missing class on the
classpath. With Java 8 a warning was displayed, but with Java 9 it's now
an error. The only workaround I've found besides fixing the classpath is
to add the new -Xold javadoc option to revert to the Java 8 behavior.

Do you know how many packages are affected by this issue?
