And this webrev adds a little bit of build stuff to the
non-HotSpot parts of the JDK:


Building Shark is much the same as building Zero, except
that instead of doing this:

  export ZERO_BUILD=true
  . jdk/make/jdk_generic_profile.sh
  gmake sanity && gmake

  export SHARK_BUILD=true
  . jdk/make/jdk_generic_profile.sh
  gmake sanity && gmake
