The problem with that is that on non-x86, non-Sparc builds, there will
be no j2re-image/lib/$ARCH/server/libjvm.so, and that causes all kinds
of problems with the build. The old core-build patch used to put the
build in j2re-image/lib/$ARCH/core/libjvm.so, and that needed so much
patching and caused so many problems with the rpm that it seemed like
the path of least resistance to put it in server even though it wasn't
a server jit at all.
