I need to do some research on this question...  We should follow what 
has been done before.  It makes sense that we don't put Oracle branded 
images in the OpenJDK distribution -- but I'm not exactly sure what we 
have been putting in there up until now...  If we need a "generic" icns 
file for the Mac port, I can supply one.
