Hi Volker,

    I would like to know have you tried to run gui application with the
build on another
windows machine which doesn't have freetype.dll installed ?  I had built
jdk on
windows but found that it can run gui applications in the machine built it,
but cann't
run gui application in machines without freetype installed.
