Justification: fails to build from source (but built successfully in the past)
While attempting to fix lwjgl's other FTBFS by removing the Build-Conflicts
with binutils-gold, I got this error, and many similar errors for other
[apply] E: Command line option 'n' [from -nocompile] is not known.
[apply] Result: 100
This turns out to be because the build process is trying to run the 'apt'
annotation processing tool from $JAVA_HOME/bin, and getting the 'apt'
advanced package tool from /usr/bin instead.
openjdk-6-jdk ships /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-amd64/bin/apt which is the
desired tool, but that version is not in jessie (#675495).
openjdk-7-jdk does not have a corresponding utility: that feature
has been removed upstream.
