We seem to have wiggled a bit on this issue, but I'm ok with including it.

I have implemented the -i warning using the existing warnings strings already in place in `jar`. This means the following warning will be output:

% build/macosx-x86_64-server-release/images/jdk/bin/jar --generate-index file.jar
Warning: The -i option is deprecated, and is planned for removal in a future JDK release

Which may be overridden by using `-XDsuppress-tool-removal-message`:

% build/macosx-x86_64-server-release/images/jdk/bin/jar --generate-index file.jar -XDsuppress-tool-removal-message

I'm not sure we are planning to remove it though, so perhaps the current message is somewhat misleading? On the other hand, this message will allow us to remove it in the future, which is perhaps good?
