Oracle has this thing about wanting to self host everything. However that doesn't stop the community from putting OpenJDK / OpenJFX stuff somewhere reasonable until Oracle finally gets all the infrastructure in place and the OpenJDK project can then take advantage of it.

I believe these are unaltered by us, but built with different flags to strip out stuff we don't need. I've asked Peter whether we can post the build instructions to produce these libs, and then figured once anyone can build them, it wouldn't be to hard to find a place to put them.

I know some of these binaries could be found elsewhere but not all of them (win64 builds I think are missing for example).
