Could you give a rough idea of what kind of resources are necessary to
compile a native JDK? I tried building it a while back, but ran out of
memory repeatedly, even with 512Mb of physical RAM and a Gigabyte of
swap. I tried again without any compiler optimisations, but ran out of
down time on the server I was using and had to give up.

(Hopefully one day we'll have an officially sanctioned binary package).
