hi all,

Please review a very small fix that makes hotspot build ignore "ide" 
folder, which is where local users can store their own favorite IDE 

For those interested, I have an Xcode project for JDK8 and JDK9 that I 
am personally actively supporting and using, which is hosted at 
https://orahub.oraclecorp.com/gerard.ziemski/xcode that is meant to be 
put in "jdk/hotspot/ide" folder.

Summary of fix:

Exclude "ide" folder from the makefile that searches for hotspot src 
files, or otherwise make bails out complaining that it does not know how 
to handle Xcode project files.


Passes local build on Mac OS X
