Missing t2k.lib, critical bug in Windows binary plugs

Just so you know.  I am actively working on the openjdk binary plug
bundles. It may take a few weeks before you see the end result.

The bundles will be sparse (small), and should include the t2k.lib file.

Keep in mind that building the openjdk on windows may still be painful,
but this at least will remove the t2k.lib roadblock.
