+README:
+  This file should be located at the top of the jdk Mercurial repository.
+
+  See http://openjdk.java.net/ for more information about the OpenJDK.
+
+Simple Build Instructions:
+
+  1. Download and install a JDK 6 from
+     http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp
+     Set the environment variable ALT_BOOTDIR to the location of this JDK 6.
+
+  2. Download and install the Binary Plugs for the most recent JDK7 from
+     http://download.java.net/openjdk/jdk7/
+     Set the environment variable ALT_BINARY_PLUGS_PATH to the location of
+     these binary plugs.
+     
+  3. Either download and install the latest JDK7 from
+     http://download.java.net/openjdk/jdk7/, or build your own complete
+     OpenJDK7 by using the top level Makefile in the OpenJDK Mercurial forest.
+     Set the environment variable ALT_JDK_IMPORT_PATH to the location of
+     this latest JDK7 or OpenJDK7 build.
+     
+  4. Check the sanity of doing a build with the current machine:
+       cd make && gnumake sanity
+     See README-builds.html if you run into problems.
+  
+  5. Do a partial build of the jdk:
+       cd make && gnumake all
+  
+  6. Construct the images:
+       cd make && gnumake images
+     The resulting JDK image should be found in build/*/j2sdk-image
