In jdk8u you can build the compact profiles using "make profiles". In 
the outputdir, you then get 3 levels of stripped down versions of the 
JRE. You will need to figure out which one you need depending on what 
parts of the class libraries you actually use in your application.

The "make install" target is rather primitive and only installs the full 
JDK. I recommend manually putting the contents of the appropriate image 
you need where you need it instead. You will find them in
