icedtea on amd64

I want to have a go at building openjdk using icedtea.
I notice that a  binary is needed  presumeably   for so-called 'bootstraping' 
and the one available from blfs is for  32-bit pentium cpu's.  I am dabbling 
with 64-bit amdK(8+} cpu's. 

Does anyone  know of a 'bootstrapping' icetea binary for amd64's   OR
whether such is redundant  and  if so  how to compile icetea without  the  
prebuilt binary.?

thanks in advance
