When building JDK 9 with Solaris Studio 12u4, linking of unpack200 and
the java launchers fails due to symbols not being exported. A typical
error message looks like this:
Undefined first referenced
symbol in file
(symbol has no version assigned)
The fix seems to be to add these symbols to the mapfiles.
I also noted that the format of the make dependency files generated by
the compiler is slightly different which required a small adjustment to
our rewriting logic for them to remove leading whitespace.
