6613871 breaks the setting of ALT_COMPILER_PATH.
See 6547520 for a related problem.
Yes, the Makefiles are a "twisted maze of paths" but the change in 6613871 is done before COMPILER_PATH is set from ALT_COMPILER_PATH.

SUGGESTED FIX 6699172 breaks ALT_COMPILER_PATH in 6u10 [ Kenneth Russel, Joseph Kowalski, Kelly O'Hair ] Using ALT_COMPILER_CC, ALT_COMPILER_CXX and ALT_COMPILER_CPP, instead of the system default environment variables CC, CXX and CPP so it does not break ALT_COMPILER_PATH. This is necessary, since those default env vars may be set on some systems, but shall not be used regarding our JDK6 build infrastructure. +++ testcase: none/hard webrev: http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/j2se_data/6u10/6699172.0 workspace: j2se engineer: sven.gothel
