I spent some time digging further into the situation and it seems that =
there=E2=80=99s no support for macOS in oracle-jdk8, and it probably =
wouldn=E2=80=99t make sense. The idk for macOS is only supplied as a DMG =
file, with a macOS installer package inside. The contents of JAVA_HOME =
can be extracted from that package, but honestly it doesn=E2=80=99t seem =
like the right approach=E2=80=A6 installing the macOS package natively =
makes it available for everyone and there _is_ support in builtin.mk for =
detecting the native install (thought it needs a little work).
At this point, I think the best solution (if it=E2=80=99s feasible) =
would be to close this PR; I can clean up my changes and submit a new =
one that solves this problem in a more all-encompassing manner.
