I just built and put up binary packages on anduin a couple of days ago
for both archs. It is possible to build icedtea6 without the binary
version, but your configure flags will be a lot longer (and you can drop
the upstream patch). You'll need to simulate a full JDK Home environment
FYI, The binaries that are placed on anduin are debug images (IOW, I
have not stripped libjvm.so in client or server VMs). Currently the book
does not mention this, but I'll update the book in a few moments anyway,
and add a note later. Stipped libjvm.so client goes from about ~70MB to
~4MB on x86 with the 1.8.x (I haven't bothered with 1.9.x). There is no
client VM in x86_64 (makes a huge difference in size between x86 and
x86_64). Both contain server, and that too can be stripped with similar
results. Give me about fifteen minutes, up and rebuild your local copy
(else it'll be in the book after tonight's render job).
