Building OpenJFX.

I am using ubuntu 17.4 (soon will upgrade to 17.10) and gcc 6 is the
default compiler.

I submitted a jfx bug as I had to fix some c code (wait call) and ignore
warnings (as error) to build OpenJFX / JDK 10 on gcc6.

I may help fixing some warnings but I am not an expert of javafx native
code so I can give you at least the complete list of gcc warnings.

My 2 cents...
