javac generates an ACC_SYNTHETIC bit which breaks JDK 5.0 VMs.  The behavior
is correct but not compatible so we should disable it in -target 5.

SUGGESTED FIX Webrev is attached. It's also available at: http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/langtools_data/7/6557865/

EVALUATION We'll unset ACC_SYNTHETIC on package-info in javac -target 5 for compatibility reason.
