I'm pretty sure JDK7 is still similar to building JDK6 on Windoze...   To
get you over the hump u could try bootstrapping your build with a recent
Windows JDK7 Proprietary Binary as built by Oracle.     This will likely let
you build only the areas you are interested in working on.   Note that you
won't be able to distribute the resulting binaries under the GPL, but, you
will make progress toward your goal of building OpenJDK7 on Windoze.
