7071275: Fix jdk7 references in README files, remove Forest Extension mentions
Summary: Change documentation to remove reference to forest and reflect update to jdk8.
Reviewed-by: ohair

     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:
    13     hg clone openjdk8
    15   To make sure you have all the nested repositories, you can run the
    16 script located in the same respository as this file:
    18     cd openjdk8 && sh ./
    20   People unfamiliar with Mercurial should read the first few chapters of
    21   the Mercurial book:
    23   See for more information about the OpenJDK.
    25 Simple Build Instructions:
    27   0. Get the necessary system software/packages installed on your system, see
    30   1. If you don't have a jdk6 installed, download and install a JDK 6 from
    32      Set the environment variable ALT_BOOTDIR to the location of JDK 6.
    34   2. Check the sanity of doing a build with your current system:
    35        make sanity
    36      See README-builds.html if you run into problems.
    38   3. Do a complete build of the OpenJDK:
    39        make all
    40      The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/j2sdk-image
    42 where make is GNU make 3.81 or newer, /usr/bin/make on Linux usually
    43 is 3.81 or newer.
    45 Complete details are available in README-builds.html.
