The wonderful T&L nightly testing caught an error in my changes
that were reviewed on this thread. On Linux and Solaris, I installed
the .debuginfo files for programs in $JAVA_HOME/bin. I made a
mistake in the way I interpreted what I was seeing in the Windows
code and in $JAVA_HOME/jre/bin. Long story shorter... we shouldn't
install .debuginfo files for programs.

7160895 3/3 tools/launcher/ attempts to launch .debuginfo

The fix is a simple tweak to changes reviewed on this thread:

After generation of the program's .debuginfo file, we move it
to the build directory that has the rest of build artifacts,
i.e., .o files etc. We generate the .debuginfo file in the bin
directory because that is where the link phase puts the program
binary in a Linux and/or Solaris build.

On Windows, the program, the .map and the .pdb files are generated
in the build directory and only the program (.exe) is copied to
the bin directory. So in a Windows build, the program binary is
in the build directory and the bin directory and on Linux and
Solaris the program binary is only in the bin directory.
