FWIW, there is already a report in BZ about Java 1.7 not being 
recognized in OSX 10.8. Stock OSX 10.8 apparently doesn't come with a 
JVM anymore out of the box, and the only available maintained JVM for 
OSX is 1.7, which in essence poses a problem for any and all 
functionality within LO that makes Java calls. I don't know how the new 
OSX buildbot deals with this or what version of OSX it is running.

On upgraded OSX machines, i.e. ones that have gone through the 10.6, 
10.7 to 10.8 cycle,we still have the maintained JVM provided by Apple 
(1.6_xx). These are just my observations, perhaps others can shed more
