Hey Kelly,
many thanks for the download links you've given below. In case someone 
may be going to create a short wiki page about the hg-less download and 
extraction process, I've attached a Makefile which might be helpful for 
those trying to build from scratch. I've omitted the "building the 
prerequisites" stuff (download, build and install Ant, JUnit, bootstrap 
JDK7 binaries and the binary plugins) because the Makefile shall depict 
the files needed to be downloaded, extracted and restructured/renamed to 
set up a working source tree. Most users won't re-install the 
AntJUnitBootstrapJDK7BinaryPlugs boiling each time they build a new 
OpenJDK snapshot anyway.

I recognized one other thing that prevents me from building completely: 
The "build" target of the /jdk7-jdk7-b24/jdk/make/javax/crypto/Makefile 
is empty which means that all directories/classes to be included in the 
/tmp/sun/javax.crypto/unsigned/jce.jar are removed by the prebuild 
target but not rebuilt subsequently.
Is there a special trick, how to build the 
tmp/sun/javax.crypto/classes/sun/security/internal/interfaces and 
Best regards
