linux i386 1.4.0-ttcompiled build started: 02-11-04 16:21
current working directory = /java/home/java/control/make
build machine =
TOPDIR = ./../..
CONTROL_TOPDIR = ./../../control
GENERICS_TOPDIR = ./../../generics
HOTSPOT_TOPDIR = ./../../hotspot
J2SE_TOPDIR = ./../../j2se
MOTIF_TOPDIR = ./../../motif

 @$(ECHO) current working directory = `$(PWD)`

and PWD is set to pwd, in common/Defs.gmk

Check that the Java build environment has a good PATH
Re-check your environment variables again and again

See the Makefile start
include $(BUILDDIR)/Platform.gmk
include $(BUILDDIR)/common/Defs.gmk

You can grep for things that are not being set.
