Hi all,

I have made some progress with the below three sub-projects, and have
successfully built jarzip. But still get new error messages with awt2d and

I answered my own question about the -source 8, its basically expecting the
images/j2sdk-image to be assigned to the respective ALT_... variables via
the make.options property in for all three projects.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to build swing via the .../javax/swing/ folder
where the required make file(s) are present.

But my other queries still stand, if you can throw some light on them, it
would be help make progress with these builds using the new build system.
