When you build the jdk repository then it builds the tools (via 
make/tools/**) before it descends into the make/java/** tree. Once 
you've done an initial build then you can do incremental builds via make 
-C make/java/nio. I don't think the build is setup to build specific 
areas starting with an empty output directory.
