1.4 regression: jexec no longer works.

      Description

      Solaris 8 is supposed to be able to execute a java program (packaged as
      a jar file) merely by using the name of jar file as a command. The kernel
      does this by invoking

         "/usr/java/jre/lib/sparc/jexec -jar <filename>"

      jexec in Merlin is currently broken in that it is producing the output

      # Hello.jar
      Error: could not find libjava_g.so
      Error: could not find Java 2 Runtime Environment.

      The symbolic link /usr/java should point to /usr/j2se, in which Merlin
      is installed. (This is standard on Solaris 9 Beta.)

      Also note that some Solaris 8 systems and Solaris 9 are broken.
      See bug 4491886.
