I ran make -d sanity today and see the following.  I don't know why it
doesn't want to build freetype_versioncheck.exe.  It doesn't exist. 

There is however a file named freetype_versioncheck.exe.manifest so to
make sure that isn't a problem I commented out its build from
freetypecheck/makefile and renamed it to
freetype_versioncheck-OLD.exe.manifest in the btbins directory, but the
debug make output looks the same after that test.

Considering target file `all'.
 File `all' does not exist.

Exiting because of the above error(s).

Tim, I went back to my original fixes (copy dll to lib and change the
make to use freetype6.dll) then did the following:

cd /cygdrive/c/OpenJDK/jdk7/jdk/make/tools/freetypecheck
make clean
make all

and started getting a trace.  I don't know if running from the
freetypecheck directory is a valid thing to do, but when I do that I
noticed that mt.exe is not found.  In this (possibly invalid) invocation
of make, $(MT) resolves to

c:/PROGRA~1/MICROS~1.0/Common7/Tools/../../Vc/Bin/mt aka "C:\Program
Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin\mt"

but on my system mt.exe is at

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\bin\mt.exe

If I change $(MT) to just mt so it's found via the PATH then the above
build is OK.

However, even with that fix, when I do make sanity the normal way the
exe isn't being built.  And no matter what I try (echo, $(warning ...) I
can't get make to trace when I run make sanity the normal way.
