Hi all,

I couldn't find good instructions for building OpenJFX with OpenJDK9 so
I've created a bash script which fetches them both from hg and builds a
working Java 9 SDK with JavaFX support:

My JITWatch tool (a JavaFX application) works fine with this build.

Tested on Debian x86_64 Squeeze and Wheezy (will test Jessie shortly).

Am going to start hacking HotSpot now with some extra instrumentation and
will put patches into a GitHub project for anyone who's interested.
