well, blame the jdk9 guys for deciding in the middle of things to 
suddenly follow the gnu style and make -addmods to --admods ;)

No seriously, I had one jigsaw build successfully building Groovy, just 
to have failures in the next one. JDK9 is still changing a lot. For 
example they decided to increase the level of encapsulation and exclude 
all non-public methods from the API you can use outside the module. With 
the consequence, that even setAccessible does not work for those anymore.

But to be sure... what JDK9 version are you using?
