When Matthias re-uploaded openjdk-8 for bootstrapping Kotlin, I just
rebuilt the last working version 8u171-b11-2 [1] for m68k and uploaded

I tried fixing the issue you are seeing but just gave up at some point
because I was hoping that the Kotlin guys will eventually jump to
openjdk-11 which works way better on all architectures (except currently
riscv64 it seems).

Is there a reason the Kotlin developers are stuck on version 8?
