Just a quick follow up:

[neugens at pegasus rt]$ ls dist

This is built with OpenJDK, no closed JDK :)

I had to copy the jfxrt.jar into the lib/ext directory though. Is the
artifacts/sdk/rt/lib/jfxrt.jar actually really used to build OpenJFX?

It would be nice if we could just rely on that rather than use the JDK
embedded copy of the jar.

What is the content of the openjfx,jar? Does it contain also the closed
classes or is purely the open ones?
