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

I have never seen this problem. As for including src.zip in the "lib" 
directory, that matches what the JDK has done for years. It may have 
something to do with how you are building your JDK? In any case, as 
mentioned in a previous email, I do not recommend using a boot JDK with 
JavaFX modules to build FX. This is no longer the expected way to build 
FX and will quite likely stop working at some point.
