RFR[9](XS): 8037298: Export HotSpots 'optimized' (i.e. not-product) configuration in the top-level configure/makefile

could somebody please review this small change which exports HotSpots
'optimized' (i.e. not-product) configuration in the top-level


The HotSpot offers a so called 'optimized' configuration which is
actually the same as a product build, but without setting '-DPRODUCT'.
That means that an 'optimized' HotSpot VM offers additional command
line options and functionality which is not present in an actual
product build.

While the 'product' configuration is exported in the top-level
configure/make system as "--with-debug-level=release" the , this was
not the case for the 'optimized' configuration.

I think I need a sponsor for this change because it requires the
regeneration of common/autoconf/generated-configure.sh as well as of
the closed generated configure files.

Thank you and best regards,
