The makefile comments, comment on the fact that Java sources that
reside inside make/tools
are in fact part of the dt.jar (ie part of the jdk, not just a tool).

However this is not that easy to fix, since the actual tool that
generates the swing classes,
needs these files. So instead of copying the sources out from
src/share/classes to compile the tool,
or linking to the classes in the boot jdk dt.jar, they are simply
stored in make/tools.

Something for future generations to ponder. The comments should be updated to
reflect the new positions of the source files inside the tools directory.
