OpenJDK Project insatisfaction

I have enrolled in this posting list to make receive to everybody my
insatisfaction message (ohh)...

I am 49 years old and I am in the IT Development world since the 80's...
I started with Spectrum 64...

I have learned Pascal, C, C++, SQL, Java, Javascript, and the list

And I like the JVM idea (multiplatform virtual machine architecture)

But I got very dissapointed when I realized that to get OpenJDK from the
source code, I have to install a previous JDK...

This means that I cannot get JDK just from a source code and a external

So, I thought that JDK source code was useless... Because, If I have de
JDK, why do I have to compile the JDK?... It is only worthy to make an
upgrade... But... where is the seed? How can I get the initial seed?

In C world the things are different... You can build everything in some few
1) Get a OS (FreeDos or Minimal Linux)
            ^----This is an Achilles heel...
2) Get an Asembler tool for that OS and CPU
           ^----This is an Achilles heel...
3) Get an Assembler code for a C/C++ Compiler-Linker
4) Generate a C/C++ Compiler-Linker
5) Start Building C/C++ Compiler-Linker Better (DJGCC or GCC)
6) Build all the libraries you need
7) Create everything...

That should include:
1) Java Clases and Libraries
1) JVM
2) javac
3) JDK complete

Unfortunately... OpenJDK is not in this sequence...

And I feel that is need to solve the gap...
Because, now, source-code is useless (except for upgrade)

I hope being able to express my idea clearly...
And to convince somebody to review the current way of evolving... Because
it have lost the connection with the origins.
