The cause is we're using a Java 6 Math.copySign method and the buildbot must be Java 5.

(as shown here: http://buildbot.pypy.org/builders/own-macosx-x86-32/builds/984/steps/shell_6/logs/stdio ) 

That wouldn't be too difficult to workaround but we could also consider requiring Java 6 (or even 7) as a minimum. Java 5 is EOL'd and e.g. Jython 2.7 requires Java 6.

Michael, do you have any Java 6 stuff in the jvm-improvements branch?
