What is missing from this is documentation on how this new variable 
should be set in a build. The proposed changes rely on two things happening:

a) JDK_ARCH_ABI_PROP_NAME=foo is either passed as a make variable, or 
set in the environment; and

b) --with-extra-cflags is used to pass -DJDK_ARCH_ABI_PROP_NAME=foo

This would go into the top-level README-builds.html, if people think it 
needs to be documented.
