I may be stating the obvious, but: that makes some sense, since the server
vm doesn't support whatever -Xshare:dump does, and java chooses which vm to
use depending on how much memory the machine has. Does it support -client I
wonder? I'm not discounting the fact that there may be a problem with the
reported amount of memory, but for building the package we could always
supply -client.
