        Description

        Since 6u10 we've apparently signed all the 32 bit JRE .exes (see bug 6688899).
        However :

        1) install/make/Makefile skips the "sign" subdirectory for 64 bit apps.
        I can't think of any valid reason to do this, except for being a hold
        over from before we had a proper 64 bit installer and it wasn't thought
        necessary.

        2) The "sign" subdirectory as far as I can tell looks at JRE_IMAGE_DIR
        which is used only to create the JRE installer.
        This apparently means that all binaries installed by the JDK installer
        (both those in jdk/bin and jdk/jre/bin) are unsigned.


        This is a very confusing situation.
