I agree. It's a bit of a problem, because the availability of the N-1 
JDK needed to compile is not regularly available through the normal 
distro package system, as other dependencies are.

I suspect we should stop referring to using the system package installer 
for the boot jdk, and instead point to http://jdk.java.net for the core 
platforms, and https://adoptopenjdk.net/ for the rest.
