Description
The install ws currently runs pack200.exe and unpack200.exe from $OUTPUTDIR/bin, which means that it also uses $OUTPUTDIR/classes.  This sub dir is huge, and takes a long time to unzip.  We should run these files from $OUTPUTDIR/j2re-image/bin.  This will eliminate the need for these directories to build the install ws:

$OUTPUTDIR/classes
$OUTPUTDIR/lib
$OUTPUTDIR/bin

and will make builds faster and build setup easier.

Comments
EVALUATION The fix will be to change the install/make/common/Pack.gmk to run the pack.exe from $OUTPUTDIR/j2re-image/bin
