Test OK

Googling around, I found that src.zip is needed if you want to use a debugger,
in order to be able to see the source code. If we suppress the debug symbol in
shared libraries, debugging is impossible anyway.

Actually, if we want the OpenJDK binaries to be usable for development, we
should not strip, nor suppress anything. If we just want a JDK for building,
we can strip executable and libraries, suppress src.zip, demo and sample,
keeping man for documenting the executables.
