Quoting from README-builds.html in the top level directory:
select the path to the cacerts file.
See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Certificate_Authority for a better
understanding of the Certificate Authority (CA). A certificates file
named "cacerts" represents a system-wide keystore with CA certificates.
In JDK and JRE binary bundles, the "cacerts" file contains root CA
certificates from several public CAs (e.g., VeriSign, Thawte, and
Baltimore). The source contain a cacerts file without CA root
certificates. Formal JDK builders will need to secure permission from
each public CA and include the certificates into their own custom
cacerts file. Failure to provide a populated cacerts file will result in
verification errors of a certificate chain during runtime. By default an
empty cacerts file is provided and that should be fine for most JDK
