A fairly simple patch for review. It allows developers to shut off building of the jdk demos and samples. Disabling these builds has a very positive impact upon build turnaround for incremental builds. Export NO_DEMOS and/or NO_SAMPLES in your shell before running make and demos and/or samples will be skipped.
The default behaviour remains unchanged.
I know that the new build infrastructure is coming soon and it will render this patch irrelevant. :-) I was asked again today for a copy of this patch so thought others may still benefit.
