      When on OS/X you start a server with -Djboss.server.base.dir this directory is used for configuration and also server.log, but not to populate the boot.log, which is still written to standalone/logs/boot.log.

      This is bad, as it will overwrite a boot.log for a server configuration that is running in parallel without -Djboss.server.base.dir= flag.
      Actually the logging config also seems to point at the old place

      Turns out that the magic to detect -Djboss.server.base.dir in standalone.sh only works for linux:

      if $linux; then

      1. consolidate the server and command line opts
      2. process the standalone options
        for var in $SERVER_OPTS

      as readlink is using '-m' flag that does not exist on OS/X.
      That dependency on linux and readlink -m will probably render this -Djboss.server.base.dir feature invalid for AIX/HP-UX/Solaris etc.
