Build dir in rpath

There is a bsd-port only change to include the build dir in the rpath of the jdk libs.
For example:

$ objdump -p jre/lib/amd64/  | grep RPATH
  RPATH       $ORIGIN:/home/truk/jdk/bsd-port/build/bsd-amd64/lib/amd64/server

As far as I can tell this is not needed and should be removed. The following diff
removes it and works okay on OpenBSD. Christos, Greg could you confirm this
doesn't break the builds on FreeBSD and NetBSD?
