Hi Diego,

It was quite confusing to find out that:
1. The patches need to be appplied in a correct order (jpeg, then gif, 
and finally png.) It's OK. However it would be great to see the complete 
  instructions how to apply the patches next time.
2. The first-to-be-applied patch (external-jpeg-splash.patch) contains 
some code that DOES NOT present in the current OpenJDK source code (the 
EXTERNAL_ZLIB etc.) and therefore the patch cannot be applied.

Could you please prepare some "clean" patches and send them? Thanks in 

best regards,
