Right, we don't want binary files checked in. The test needs to exercise 
System.inheritedChannel and so requires launching the VM with 
stdin/stdout/stderr connected to various types of networking sockets (to 
emulate launching from inetd/xnetd). That's an awkward scenario to setup 
so the test uses a custom launcher. We originally checked it in because 
we couldn't assume there would be compilers installed on all machines 
running the test. There's a bug open (JDK-6930061) to look at 
alternatives. It's not blocker to Kumar's changes of course.
