From http://java.net/jira/browse/MACOSX_PORT-224 --

Charset.availableCharsets() does not contain sun.nio.cs.ext.COMPOUND_TEXT

Build: b201
Keywords: test-fail-macos
Tests failed (Regression):
Another related failure: sun/nio/cs/TestCompoundTest.java

EVALUATION As Sherman pointed out, we only include COMPOUND_TEXT on X11 platforms: if ("SunOS".equals(osName) || "Linux".equals(osName)) { charset("x-COMPOUND_TEXT", "COMPOUND_TEXT", new String[] { "COMPOUND_TEXT", // JDK historical "x11-compound_text", "x-compound-text" }); } so we either include this charset on the Mac or else adjust the tests.
