While building Java Kernel, any files which are specified as going into a particular bundle but which cannot be found are treated as fatal errors.

But there are some files which legitimately may or may not be present, based on build flags or other environmental factors.  We need to add an "optional" attribute to file tags in bundles.xml, so that we can specify that the absense of certain files should not constitute a fatal error.
