Description
In langtools/make/Makefile the settings for DEV_NULL are the wrong way round for Cygwin and MKS.

EVALUATION

For reference, see jdk/make/common/shared/Platform.gmk, line 297...

  # Where is unwanted output to be delivered?
  # MKS uses the special file "NUL", cygwin uses the customary unix file.
  ifeq ($(USING_CYGWIN),true)
    DEV_NULL = /dev/null
  else
    DEV_NULL = NUL
  endif
