RFR(XS): 8136690: AIX: libjimage should be linked with the C++ compiler

can somebody please review the following AIX change which fixes the
build on AIX after "8087181 Move native jimage code to its own library
Change 8087181 moved the jimage code into its own library into the jdk
repository. Although libjimage is a C++ library it is currently linked
by the C compiler together with platform dependent C++ system
libraries (and I'm not sure if this is done intentionally or if it is
just a copy-and-paste error).
On AIX linking a C++ library with the C-compiler doesn't work and we
have to link the library with the C++ compiler which automatically
adds all the required dependencies.
Thank you and best regards,
