VisualVM in IcedTea

Since NetBeans has been pushed into Fedora rawhide, I have updated
visualvm in IcedTea to use NetBeans 6.1 to build. Instead of
downloading NetBeans and building it during compile time, the IcedTea
build now only downloads the profiler tool and the basic NetBeans
build cluster to build visualvm.
yum --enablerepo=rawhide install netbeans-*
VisualVM still is not built by default. To build it, pass
--enable-visualvm to configure. You can also use
--with-netbeans-home=/path/to/netbeans to specify where NetBeans 6.1
is installed. By default, it is set to /usr/share/netbeans.
I have updated all the docs (README, INSTALL, HACKING) to reflect this
change. Pending no there are no problems, visualvm will be available
in Fedora 10 after the upcoming release.
