There is a reason for that.  Some debugging related Graal code makes use of classfile information to provide better information.  Since this is Java and not C++ it *is* possible to have pleasant debugging experience even in product builds.  I want this to be there.

>> Please, review build changes for AOT.  Only Linux/x64 platform is supported. 'jaotc' and AOT part of Hotspot will be build only on Linux/x64.
>> Changes include new 'jaotc' launcher, makefile changes to build jdk.vm.compiler (Graal) and jdk.aot modules used by 'jaotc'.

>> 'jaotc' requires installed libelf package on a system to build native part of 'jaotc'. It is used to generated AOT shared libraries (.so) as result of AOT compilation.
>> Hotspot makefile changes will be pushed together with Hotspot AOT changes.
