H Frans,

I've recently wrote a step-by-step instruction on how you can build
OpenJDK 8 on Windows with free tools but the instructions should apply
to OpenJDK 7 as well:

Keep in mind that these instructions still use the "old" build infrastructure.
With the new one, the build may be easier, but I haven't tried it yet
and the new build infra is only available in the JDK8 tree anyway.
