The current implementation of jdeps reads ct.sym to determine if it is supported or JDK internal API.  ct.sym is only generated for rt.jar and for the image build.  This doesn't cover the APIs in tools.jar nor other classes not in rt.jar.

In JDK 9, jigsaw will modularize the platform and declare exported APIs in the module metadata.  The enhancement in jdeps should take that into account.
