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 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:

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!
