I’m not sure about this.  One reason to have the monolithic jvmci.jar is to not have to build the JVMCI on command line when you make a change in your IDE:

cthaling at macbook:~/ws/jdk9/hs-comp/hotspot$ mx -v vm -version
/Users/cthaling/ws/jdk9/hs-comp/build/macosx-x86_64-normal-server-release/jdk/bin/java -server -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -XX:+EnableJVMCI -d64 -Xbootclasspath/p:/Users/cthaling/ws/jdk9/hs-comp/build/mx/hotspot/dists/jvmci.jar -version
java version "9-internal"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 9-internal+0-2016-01-11-180948.cthaling.hs-comp)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 9-internal+0-2016-01-11-180948.cthaling.hs-comp, mixed mode)
