Review: separate building of ant-javafx.jar from fxpackager proper

Chris, Kevin,

In a future modular build, ant-javafx.jar will need to be compiled separately from the fxpackager module sources. This is because a module compile cannot be dependent on a non-module (like the ant jar)

Please note: this is the minimum I needed to split out the compile of the ant dependent stuff. I suspect that there might be a few more items that could be moved (like the resources maybe) into the new source set, but that will be for a later commit.

I tested this by comparing the results of the files in build/sdk/lib/ant-javafx.jar, and modular-sdk/modules/jdk.packager against a current Linux build.
