BUG: zip file in sdk lib folder causes bugged JDK build

The zip file "src.zip" located in rt/build/sdk/lib/ after building 
JavaFX from source causes a bugged build of OpenJDK with JavaFX 
integrated into it. The build itself completes just fine, it's just that 
resulting build has issues.

Because a zip file isn't a supported module format, Netbeans spits out 
an error saying as such when attempting to compile a JavaFX 
application(unsure if the project being modular matters here or not, but 
it is.). It also seems to cause any attempt to build a new build of 
OpenJDK to segmentation fault using that same bugged JDK as the boot jdk.

Is there somekind of special exception for unsupported module formats 
for the standalone SDK or is it just manually removed after it's done 
being compiled?

Not sure if it's worth creating a bug report for this since this seems 
to be some minor mishap. Including a zipped file of the source code in a 
lib file doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me... I would think it 
should be in the parent directory(rt/buid/sdk), next to the legal and 
lib folders.
