This is the path where you checked out OpenJFX. It is important that
you get jfxrt.jar out of the ext directory. I believe it is no longer

parts of JFX were not open source and you could not build everything.
In that case, you needed a binary stub. Of course, it doesn't hurt for
everyone to move jfxrt.jar to a well known standard place in case you
need it again.
