Just a short warning on the latest CYGWIN version of make 3.81-1. Apparently this make utility doesn't support pathnames with the drive letter syntax (e.g. C:/). This means that the JDK makefiles won't work with this version of 'make'. The fix is being investigated (see http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6462815) for JDK 7, probably too late to change things for JDK 6.

I have just tried to build JDK 6.0 b99 following the
instruction from Kelly:
http://blogs.sun.com/kto/entry/building_the_jdk_6_0

I got this problem with the cygwin make 3.81-1.
The error was:
sanity-rules.gmk:44: *** multiple target patterns. Stop.

The problem has gone after installation of the 3.80-1.

Thanks, Kelly!
