6971426: jdk/make/docs docs target does not work on windows
The boot jdk really needs to be at least 1.6 for jdk7.
The jdk/make/docs/Makefile was recently re-worked but it wasn't
very forgiving during partial
builds where some of the directories might not exist, or when
unrelated platform specific directories
were purposely not included during the build.
Note that even though the javadocs can be built on windows
machines now, developers might want
refrain from actually doing it on windows due to the build time
hit and the fact that it is still not a
complete documentation set when generated on windows (jvmti.html
is not generated on windows).
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even
though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits
who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray
twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
