Even though I don't know how these RC flags are interpreted, I notice 
that virtually all other libraries that has a JDK_FNAME and 

(In fact, generalizing the pattern

     RC_FLAGS := $(RC_FLAGS) \
         -D "JDK_FNAME=FOO.dll" \
         -D "JDK_FTYPE=0x2L",

that appear all over the place is something that has been on our agenda, 
unfortunately for far too long without happening).

It seems that there need to be a good reason for these libraries to not 
match this pattern.
