Looks ok to me.  I'll run this trough some build&test and integrate it into the jdk8/build repos.

There could be some impact to the existing builds, but the GenerateNativeHeader change should be harmless.


7181501: Add some GenerateNativeHeader annotations and misc Mac adjustments to makefiles

Anyone seeing any serious issues please scream.

In order to still compile in the old build, langtools had to be added to the classpath in the ant script compiling those classes, since they were compiled by the bootjdk javac rather than the bootstrap javac.
