Hi Johan,

I was able to get OpenJFX to build just now and yesterday (on Windows 
under Cygwin) when fixing the build instructions for the OpenJFX wiki.  
I downloaded jdk-8-ea-bin-b61-windows-i586-18_oct_2012.exe and followed 
the instructions that I created here: to make sure 
they were right.

I realize that the instructions are wrong on OpenJFX and will get to 
that soon.
