make(1) file structure design/usage docs ?

Hi all ,

Could anyone tell me if there's a tie in between the 
--with-import-hotspot & --with-boot-jdk options, I ask purely because, 
although I can run a successful truly vanilla OJDK build, all attempts 
fail if I attempt to use either, or both of, the --with-import-hotspot 
&/or --with-boot-jdk options - the build consistently fails as follows...

## Starting jdk
make[2]: *** No rule to make target 
needed by 

Moreover, more in hope than expectation, could anyone tell me if there 
is any documentation on the new i.e. autoconf based, make file structure 
and the way it knits together ? If I try an IBM variant build (using our 
hotspot & boot JDK), I always get a fatal error whereby the build fails 
to find the file jdk/classes_security/_the.BUILD_SECURITY_batch.tmp - 
hence my question about the structure of the make files.
