Actually,, I suspect we may have many of these CCC type issues, we could just gather them up and
do one CCC, when we get closer to integrating the changes.
So I still vote for delete, but we need to track these things.

Normally I try to copy the actual behavior and put a note in the new make file about it. Now I discovered something that's just too weird:
>>>> In "jdk/make/sun/rmi/cgi/Makefile" the program "java-rmi.exe" is built. This looks like it's intended to be a windows native version of the "java-rmi.cgi" script that is available on linux and solaris. The makefile even copies java-rmi.exe to java-rmi.cgi. When creating the j2sdk/jre images, however, only the exe version is included. I verified this in the promoted builds of jdk 7 (b148 and a few others). The makefile also tries to declare that the program be compiled from "jdk/src/windows/bin/java-rmi.c" (by declaring FILES_c variable) but Program.gmk ignores this and just builds main.c (the standard java launcher) instead. So the "java-rmi.exe" in a windows distribution is just java.exe with a weird name.
>>>> What is this script/program used for, is it used at all, and how should I convert the building of it? I have tried compiling java-rmi.c and it seems to be working at least. (Gives same default output as the script on linux)
