Updated build webrevs (webrev.2)


Use one ENABLE_AOT variable in all config and make files (removed NEEDS_LIB_JELFSHIM).


First, check for linux-x64 presence of jdk.aot and jdk.vm.compiler directories. Set ENABLE_AOT=true if all are present. Throw config errors if --enable-aot is specified but sources are missing or on 
different platforms.

Second, in lib-elf.m4, when ENABLE_AOT==true check if libelf.h is present and usable.
Throw config errors if --enable-aot is specified but libelf.h is missing.
Otherwise warnings and set ENABLE_AOT==false.
