Compiling 8u20-b26 for iOS

I'll take a look at the build order, but it sounds like a bug. Perhaps 
you can just locally disable the builders or add a dependency on the 
compilation task for the IOS web files.

As to your other question, Richard is right that we omit lib/ext from 
compilation, but there can be issues in doing this (e.g., when running 
tests or building apps). We recommend that you remove (not just rename) 
the jfxrt.jar from the JDK you use to build.
