Hi all (and especially the makefiles experts),

This fix removes support for building hotspot universal libraries on Mac OS X and simplifies the makefiles.

We are still building Mac OS X hotspot libraries as universal libraries, but with only one architecture (x86_64). The rest of JDK is built as plain single architecture libraries and there is no longer any need for this complexity (since we haven't supported 32bit platform on Mac OS X for a while now)

Testing: JPRT + RBT on all platforms.
