If the files required to build a combo installer are not found in the combo_build target, currently a warning is thrown:

<<<Finished Recursively making wrapper.jdk build @ Mon Jun 27 04:10:13 PDT 2011.
Warning: The combo jre installer is not built since the 64-bit Installer path is not found



The correct behavior is to cause the build to break.

This target is called in the build.sh RE builds script:

gnumake combo_build


This issue is clearly an annoyance and functionally incorrect. Furthermore the fix is trivial. However DEV engineering has been pre-occupied with very high priority development in time for 7U2. Either this CR get deferred to any immediate release or is accepted at a later build (but does not meet the requirements for a stopper).

SUGGESTED FIX Updated the makefile to exit the build with error in case of the missing installer path

EVALUATION Will update makefile to fail the build in case of the issue of building combo installer.
