> BLFS has instructions on building IcedTea6 which uses OpenJDK6 here:

I know it does and   but I do not have gtk ( a preReq for icedTea) installed 
and have no intention to for this application )

So it seems it is either openjdk7  or   the binary jdk   until   a version of 
IcedT is available without this dependency.

By the way by way of an UPDATE 
The 'pre-running-make' sanity check had this:-

WARNING: You are not building the HOTSPOT sources.
         Hotspot libs will be obtained from 
         the location set in ALT_HOTSPOT_IMPORT_PATH. 

and ALT_HOTSPOT_IMPORT_PATH = /opt/jdk-6u24
The machine had  this /opt/jdk-6u24/jre/bin/java_vm

--a) is  /opt/jdk-6u24/jre/bin/java_vm   equivalent to 'hotspot' used?
--b) how does one  build the  HOTSPOT sources for jdk7?  and will the 'hot 
spot' building give a needed jvm?
( I looked  through the build  file and there does not seem to be any obvious 
settings )

thanks in advance
