The Cygwin dependency isn't such a big deal, but many of the issues that cause the build to fail (having to do with freetype) seemed rather difficult to work around. Just doing a build of the normal openjdk code is difficult enough without also throwing external patches into the mix which may or may not apply cleanly.

If they are willing to share their 32-bit and 64-bit builds with me, I am more than willing to run some of my "real world" Ruby code under JRuby and help Charlie vet the correctness and performance of the latest fixes. If such a build already exists and is publicly available, please point me to it (my google searches have been fruitless).

Could you please share your problem on building on Windows? Are they
mlvm specific problems?
