Tried it on Windows 7. Cygwin, make, bootstrap JDK - everything was 
configured to build JDK with the old system.

Langtools, hotspot, corba, jaxp, jaxws are built fine, but in jdk it 
fails with the following symptoms:

15830981 [main] sh 7892 C:\cygwin\bin\sh.exe: *** fatal error - fork: 
can't reserve memory for stack 0x29BCF0 - 0x2A0000, Win32 error
