The new Hotspot Build System has now been in place for a week and a
half. I have not heard any major complaints so I think the time has come
to remove the old. This patch removes all the old, now unused, makefiles
in hotspot/make. It also removes the support for using these makefiles
from configure and the top level make dir. Finally it moves all the new
makefiles from hotspot/makefiles to hotspot/make.
With this change, we will be able to conclude JEP 284.
