      Description

      A lot of Linux distributions prefer that programs use the system-installed version of libraries instead of bundling libraries. OpenJDK currently bundles a copy of lcms2 and uses that to build.

      It would be nice if the build system could be modified to allow building against the system installed copy of lcms2 as well as the bundled copy.

      The goal is to add a new option `--with-lcms=` with possible values `bundled` or `system`. Using `--with-lcms=system` builds using the system-installed copy of lcms2 while `--with-lcms=bundled` builds with the bundled copy of lcms2 in OpenJDK.
