Got it. Yes this is a non-bootstrap build. OpenSCG's GPL 
openjdk6-build24 is used as a bootstrap jdk for all windows builds -

This one really patches openjdk directory. But results have some 
differences with openjdk directory obtained by running icedtea build 
with "make" and aborting it when patches are applied and actual openjdk 
build is started.

I collected the differences and not sure how to interpret them (most of 
them are binary files):
  - different files list -
  - actual diff for these files -
