Re: Bug#742864: ITP: openjdk-8 -- OpenJDK 8 - Open source implementation of the Java Platform Standard Edition 8

After further investigation the error I encountered was caused by GNU
Make 4.0. Erik Joelsson from Oracle kindly provided a patch [1] and I've
been able to build the compact JREs.

I did a quick test with headless applications to see the difference in
startup time between the full JRE and the compact1 profile. I measured
the time to run 'mvn -version' and 'ant -version' 100 times. The compact
JRE was faster by 6-7% only. With clirr the compact JRE was ~13% faster.

With an average startup time of ~100ms the difference was hardly
noticeable. Now I wonder if packaging the compact JREs is really worth
the trouble.
