After running for almost 4 hours the build is ready :D.
openjdk version "1.7.0-internal"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build
OpenJDK Client VM (build 1.7.0-internal-rishi_17_aug_2007_00_49-b00, mixed
thanks a lot for everyone's help.
igor: I had read your build story and that was my one big help, and starting
sandeep : your mails and blog has been of a great help.
Actually the build process is not as complicated as it seems to be, In my
work place I have seen way much more complex build processes which run for
more time require a big amount of setup.
but just one point from my side.
The biggest pain is to use Visual Studio.net 2003 and not Visual
Studio.2005Express edition or GCC for windows or MingW or some other
free Compiler for
windows.The idea of buying any software to work on open source development
is not very encouraging.

I tried both, but none worked.but Using Visual Studio directly to compile
the freetype project actually worked.
I suggest to try to repeat my windows build story described here (make
