I think the problem was that jstack and jmap didn't work until the
debuginfo package was installed.  This tells me that the debuginfo
stripping in our Linux build system is too aggressive for this purpose.

I think that's something we must fix ourselves.  What we really
need from OpenJDK is a way to build with complete debuginfo in
both binaries and jarfiles.
