That is the intention. You have one full checkout, and then for example 50 langtools repoes (langtools1 - langtools50). You create 50 build directories build1 - build50, and type ....fullforest/configure --with-override-source-root=..../langtoolsXX in each of them.
Now you can build any configuration simply (cd .../build42 ; make)
Or if you put all (build1-build50) below jdk8/build you can type "make ALL" and it will build all 50 at once.
The reason for this requirement is that we have to share the common makefiles and setup code between the repoes. It cannot be duplicated in each repo. And secondly it is a good idea to be able to always build the full product.
