For some odd reason, the native library compiled for jdk.security.auth 
is called jaas_unix on unix and jaas_nt on windows. There's no good 
reason for this, and it breaks with the common practice in OpenJDK.

This patch renames both libraries to the basename "jaas" (that is, 
libjaas.so, libjaas.dylib or jaas.dll, depending on OS).
