7003845: README-builds document proper location of forest extension, provide alternatives
Reviewed-by: robilad

     1 README:
     2   This file should be located at the top of the OpenJDK Mercurial root
     3   repository. This root repository will include a "make" directory,
     4   and a Makefile for building the entire OpenJDK.
     5   A full OpenJDK repository set (forest) should also include the following
     6   6 nested repositories:
     7     "jdk", "hotspot", "langtools", "corba", "jaxws"  and "jaxp".
     8   There are also several source downloads for the jax* repositories that
     9   will be needed.
    11   This one root repository can be obtained with something like:
    12     hg clone openjdk7
    13   To make sure you have all the nested repositories, you can run:
    14     cd openjdk7 && sh ./
    15   (This is identical to using the Mercurial Forest Extension command 
    16    'hg fclone openjdk7').
    17   People unfamiliar with Mercurial should read the first few chapters of
    18   the Mercurial book:
    20   See for more information about the OpenJDK.
    22 Simple Build Instructions:
    24   0. Get the necessary system software/packages installed on your system, see
    27   1. If you don't have a jdk6 installed, download and install a JDK 6 from
    29      Set the environment variable ALT_BOOTDIR to the location of JDK 6.
    31   2. Check the sanity of doing a build with your current system:
    32        gnumake sanity
    33      See README-builds.html if you run into problems.
    35   3. Do a complete build of the OpenJDK:
    36        gnumake all
    37      The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/j2sdk-image
    39 where gnumake is GNU make 3.81 or newer, /usr/bin/make on Linux and
    40 /usr/sfw/bin/gmake or /opt/sfw/bin/gmake on Solaris.
