That wacky language runtime is still needed to bootstrap Java compilers without relying on binaries. This is especially important for musl (because except for Oracle's semi-proprietary portola, there is no binary for musl at all) and for other architectures (OpenJDK is, as far as I'm aware, not a cross-compiler, so arches like mips or ppc64 would be screwed). --arw -- A.
