Thanks! BTW amd64 build is done [1] (sha1: 
6e1872aaeced3ba07f780b3a0583a4d6537a71a1) from the same sources as i586 
one and I'm going to look at the patches.

I'm not sure, what exactly is "bootstrap build"? I copied patched 
openjdk sources into windows and built them calling "make" from the top

On the quick glance "make extract" leave "icedtea6-1.12.5/openjdk" 
directory unpatched.
