      Description

      Solaris version of the JRE has a symlink in jre/lib/$os.arch/libjvm.so -> client/libjvm.so, this was added in the early days of Java to maintain
      backward compatibility with the earlier versions. This symlink has been
      problematic in the past as it loads both the server and the client libjvm.so
      simultaneously. These problems were circumvented by setting the LD_LIBRARY_PATH
      by the launcher to the flavor of the libjvm.so to be loaded (server/client).

      With the purging of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting in the launcher see
      6367077, this will no longer be the case and the previous issues will
      be exposed, therefore this symlink needs to be removed now.
