[icedtea-web] RFC: use an actual number as the JDK_UPDATE_VERSION for plugin

The IcedTea builds used to pass in a value for JDK_UPDATE_VERSION when
building the plugin, which was left out when IcedTea-Web was created.
This patch defines this variable and sets it to an arbitrary value.
Without this patch, about:plugins in firefox shows that the plugin
supports the mime type "application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.6.0_".
This seems to cause issues with the deployJava.js script - the users get
redirected to the Java download page. Adding any value after the _ is
enough to make applets using deployJava.js work with the plugin.
The following web page can be used as a reproducer:

* Makefile.am (JDKJDK_UPDATE_VERSION): Define variable.
Any thoughts or comments?
