Can hotspot be compiled on Linux (32 or 64bit) without the dependencies documented in openjdk/README-builds.html ?

I work at a company with restrictive IT policies and new software versions are prohibited.

2. unzip
3. cd openjdk
4. make

ERROR: FreeType version  2.3.0  or higher is required.

Exiting because of the above error(s).
