CR 7110002 proposes to rename the unix version of the awt toolkit
libraries to allow them reside in the same directory as libawt.
xawt/libmawt.so -> libawt_xawt.so
headless/libmawt.so -> libawt_headless.so
The proposed new library names are prefixed with 'libawt' since they are
subcomponents of libawt and this will make them more easily recognizably
as such. But this is not necessarily a requirement, just that they are
unique and can be colocated with libawt.
This CR is part of the modularity effort. A future requirement of the
jigsaw prototype is to treat native JDK implementation libraries as it
would any user module installed in a module library. That is, native
libraries should reside within the lib directory of the installed
module. In the module library then AWT's libraries might be located in
somewhere like modules/sun.desktop/8.0/lib.
