jpackage is not and not planned to be available on Solaris. It is only 
on Windows, Linux and Mac. Is this a sufficient argument to bring in the 
patch as is and not rework it to make C++98 compliant?
According to the list of supported compilers [1] on platforms where 
jpackage is available they all support C++11 for several years already.
