It doesn’t.

VMFile.exists always returns “true”, no matter what.  The C part is
fine, but the Java part is not, so I suspected the JVM to be at fault.

I managed to build ant-bootstrap successfully with this patch:

Note that the change to native/jni/java-io/java_io_VMFile.c is necessary
even though it just prints things and compares values.  So this might be
time-related or it could be other stateful behaviour.  Don’t know yet.

The changes in ant-bootstrap might not be needed.

Can someone confirm that this patch helps?
