I'd also like Erik's input on this. All of the jar building was modified 
so that jars go into images/lib not jdk/lib. So it should not be 
necessary (or desirable) to build into jdk/lib and then copy over. That 
said all other jar creation is handled via CreateJars.gmk so perhaps 
this does need a special case. But again I'd like the build-infra 
experts to comment on it.

This isn't a blocker. I just want to make sure we have a good resolution 
to the issue.

I also verified the new build approach with cross-compilation - 
everything good!
