README of openjdk-7-ea-src-b71-03_sep_2009 says the following. I am
wondering why I need step 1. Can I start with step 2 directly?
Simple Build Instructions:
1. Download and install a JDK 6 from
Set the environment variable ALT_BOOTDIR to the location of this JDK 6.
2. Download and install the Binary Plugs for the most recent JDK7 from
Set the environment variable ALT_BINARY_PLUGS_PATH to the location of
these binary plugs.
3. Check the sanity of doing a build with the current machine:
See README-builds.html if you run into problems.
4. Do a complete build of the jdk:
The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/j2sdk-image
