JDK-8217305, JDK-8209002 and fixes

8209002 is a follow-on bug from 8034788 (I added a link), BUT I see now 
that 8209002 is actually not a public bug, although we reviewed it and 
pushed it in public.

I presume when JDK-8209002 was logged, being not public was probably 
because it was reported by something relating to an installer or not in 
the open, or it was thought it might be our internal process issue.  The 
actual fix relates to the build scripts, but by that point the bug 
description/notes may contain  non-public machines/info in notes.

8217305 is more recent, and a very similar change.  They aren't really 
related, not sure they should be linked, although the changes are so 

8209002 changes JDK_VER.
8217305 changes JDK_FVER.

8217305 is not a confidential bug, but I haven't yet done an open review 
for that one.  The required diff is below to clarify what it's about.  
If there's impact to the open builds we can do the review/approval 
required to get it there...
