Depending on what you're interested in, using simple JVM instead of 
OpenJDK may also be an option.

JamVM: http://jamvm.sourceforge.net/  might be a good candidate.

If you're going to have high-performance, production JVM (which is 
propably the case in Minix), or you've been assigned with specific task 
of porting than of course have no choice.

But if this is student project, using JVM that is simple enough to grasp 
its codebase in few days might save you a lot effort.
