In the past I was able to build part of jdk 8 but that is not currently
working although I am able to do a full 32 bit build.  I've recently
moved from XP to W7 so my environment might not be set up quite right
yet.  Here's what I do...

// These are done in a bat file before I do any makes
set ALT_BOOTDIR=C:/Progra~1/Java/jdk1.7.0_02
set ALT_FREETYPE_HEADERS_PATH=C:/Users/Pete/freetype-2.4.8/include
set ALT_FREETYPE_LIB_PATH=C:/Users/Pete/freetype-2.4.8/objs/win32/vc2010
set ANT_HOME=C:/Progra~2/apache-ant-1.7.1
set ALT_MSDEVTOOLS_PATH=C:/Progra~2/MICROS~1/Windows/v7.0A/bin
set PATH=C:/WINDOWS/system32;C:/WINDOWS;C:/WINDOWS/System32/Wbem;
set CYGWIN=nodosfilewarning
cd c:\Users\Pete\cygwin\bin
bash --login -i

// These are done at the command line
eval `bin/ -v10 -32`
cd /cygdrive/c/OpenJDK/jdk8/jdk/make/java/awt/
make ARCH_DATA_MODEL=32 FASTDEBUG=true 2>&1 | tee build.log

The error I am getting is

make: *** No rule to make target
`../../../build/windows-i586/btjars/compileproperties.jar', needed by
`compile_all_props'.  Stop.

Since the above has windows-i586 instead of windows-i586-debug it looks
like I need to add another variable when invoking make.
