      Description

      A survey among jikes users on the desired behavior of @files on the compiler
      command line suggested that each line should be considered a separate token.
      That's the only way to support filenames that contain spaces.

      javac should adopt this suggestion, but there is a backward compatibility
      issue when a line contains something like

      -source 1.4

      To avoid most problems, tokenize the line when it begins with a dash.
      Otherwise consider the contents of the line to be a single token.
