Build failure: missing DEMOS_LICENSE

I did a fresh clone of jdk7u/jdk7u and tried to build. I got the following failure while building jdk:
make: *** No rule to make target `/mnt/shared/Dev/jdk/jdk7u/jdk/DEMOS_LICENSE', needed by `/mnt/shared/Dev/jdk/jdk7u/build/linux-amd64/j2sdk-image/demo/DEMOS_LICENSE'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/mnt/shared/Dev/jdk/jdk7u/jdk/make'
Is this file missing from the repository? Or perhaps there's something wrong with my configuration?
I was able to work around the failure by creating a dummy DEMOS_LICENSE file (there was actually another missing file, too—SAMPLES_LICENSE—with the same workaround).
