And you will need "jdktools" to get a launcher.  If people prefer that
the launcher is built from classlib again then that is fine, I can put
it back.  My understanding was that it was moved to jdktools for a
reason and removing the duplication meant removing the copy from
classlib.  I can remove the duplication in the other direction if people

Yep, seems that there is some manual tidy up required after updating
from SVN to remove old copies of the tools files from classlib.

I don't understand what you mean here.

When you copy together the results of the classlib, jdktools, and vm you
have enough files to package as an HDK/JDK/JRE.  We emit enough files
from each working directory to satisfy packaging them in any
configuration.  At the moment, we don't have a build target to create
only files required for a JRE etc.

Of course, you can build a single working_* against an HDK and just work
on the area of code you are interested in.
