In my blog at blogs.sun I talked about
building the JDK 6.0
but I must confess, most of the effort is in just getting your
machine setup, that alone should put you up for a JDK medal of honor.
Once a Windows XP machine has the C++ compiler installed and cygwin installed, the rest is fairly easy.
Of course that's easy for me to say, I've built it so many times
I think I might be going build...
