Why is the build so slow?
I've compiled the JDK once. Now, if I issue "make scsl" a second time I am expecting it to figure out fairly quickly that there is nothing to be rebuilt.
It takes a whopping 45 minutes (!!!) to return to the command-line even though there is nothing to build.
How does Sun honestly expect anyone to submit patches for the JDK when rebuilding it takes so long? I'd like to make a patch, recompile the JDK, test the patch [iterate until patch works]. There is no way I am going to do this with 45 minutes between iterations.
