<AWT Dev> RFR: 8081447: System JPEG builds include in-tree jpeglib.h, resulting in build failure

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8081447
Webrev: http://cr.openjdk.java.net/~andrew/8081447/webrev.01/

In testing a fix for [0], I found that system jpeg support seems
to have bitrotted. Due to the movement of makefiles, it's hard
to trace where this change occurred, but we have the conditional

ifeq ($(USE_EXTERNAL_LIBJPEG), true)

but then BUILD_LIBJAVAJPEG_HEADERS is not used and
instead $(addprefix -I, $(LIBJAVAJPEG_SRC)) is hardcoded in

    CFLAGS := $(CFLAGS_JDKLIB) $(addprefix -I, $(LIBJAVAJPEG_SRC)) \

When building using the system libjpeg, this means that the jpeglib.h
from the in-tree copy of libjpeg is used to build jpegdecoder.o. This
leads to references to symbols that don't exist in the system version
and a failure to link libjavajpeg.so

The simple fix for this is to use BUILD_LIBJAVAJPEG_HEADERS again,
as in the listed webrev.

Ok to push to client?
