Yap, I guess you do.
Try to remove them, and you can be surprised that your configurations will work better then with them.
Probably better then my words will be to read Phils answers from nearly year ago:
However, I'm 100% sure just for linux based builds. For windows I'm going to test later, but have no
idea where to test Mac....
Please note, this is for jdk7+8. Jdk6 still needs those config files.
