I have been trying to find documentation on how the bootstrap build works on
IcedTea, but have not found it. I have tried to read the Makefile, but I
must admit I am not that proficient with makefiles.
If there is no documentation, perhaps answers to these question will help
1. How many passes (full compilations) are there done on the source before
the final jdk is complete?
2. How much (if any) of the source that is being built is compiled and put
into the rt-closed.jar?
3. Is rt-closed.jar all that should be needed to compile the JDK the first
4. What is the expected results of a successful bootstrap?
