Makefile patch needed when building the b20 OpenJDK source drop

If they're going to change with every build release, then it's even MORE
important to make sure they're in some kind of source repository. Otherwise,
the whole point of keeping it in a source-code control repository
(rollbacks, check out to a label, and so on) goes completely out the window
when I can't get the corresponding binary plugs.
I can't be the only one who grew up under the rule of source control that
states, "Everything necessary to create a build must be stored in the source
repository", can I?
