We should remove the MCS post-processing on Solaris.

The msc command is used to post-process the binaries on Solaris, with 
the intent of adding the version number. Post-processing of binaries is 
a step that we'd like to avoid, if possible.

It now turns out that the MCS processing has been broken since at least 
JDK8, and nobody has noticed. I recommend we just remove it.
