I tried following the instructions in rraptorr's README and hit 2 snags:
Here is the full console output:

for f in debian/.in; do
f2=$(echo $f | sed 's/JB/sun-java6/;s/.in$//'); \
I quite don't understand, jdk-6u31-linux-i586.bin and jdk-6u31-linux-x64.bin are still available at the location mentioned in README: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
Please download both of them, put them in the sun-java6 directory and it should build.
Any status update about this issue?
You're right. I didn't realize that Java 6 is no longer the latest version of Java.
