patch for armv6
I have boostrapped openjdk7 on armv6, you can find the tarball at  and the build log at 
I have attached a patch for review.
Will do build validation and verification.
This looks good from the perspective of getting a bootstrap java built:
We are now ready to take on openjdk7/8 which does fail to build after adding armv6 to ONLY_FOR_ARCHS:
If there are no objections, I will commit this and allow this port to build on armv6.
No objection. I'd really like to get these changes pushed upstream, but that shouldn't block getting them committed.

should have been "submitted by mikael" ... lame.
FYI, I just copied the distfile to my public_distfiles. Although I have no way to reproduce it, i.e., java/openjdk7 cannot be built with it, I have no strong objection ATM.
