<AWT Dev> RFR: 8196516: libfontmanager must be built with LDFLAGS allowing unresolved symbols

Could somebody please review this build fix for libfontmanager.so. The
issue for us is that with some LDFLAGS the build breaks as described in
bug JDK-8196218. However, we cannot link to a providing library at
build-time since we don't know which one it should be: libawt_headless
or libawt_xawt. That has to happen at runtime. The proposed fix filters
out relevant linker flags when libfontmanager is being built. More
details are in the bug.
Testing: I've run this through submit and got the following results.
SwingSet2 works fine for me on F27. I'm currently running some more
tests on RHEL 7.

Not sure what this test failure means. Could somebody at Oracle shed
some light on this?
