        Description

        Proposal has been made to remove "native2ascii" tool from JDK9.

        It was identified that JDK9 uses "native2ascii" itself to convert Japanese nroff man pages to various encodings (Linux: UTF-8, Solaris: UTF-8, PCK/SJIS) from eucJP source.

          define install-ja-manpage
                $(MKDIR) -p $(@D)
                $(CAT) $< \
                    | $(NATIVE2ASCII) -encoding eucJP \
                    | $(SED) 's/@@VERSION@@/$(THIS_JDK_VERSION)/g' \
                    | $(NATIVE2ASCII) -reverse -encoding $1 \
                    > $@
          endef

        Since the supported Solaris and Linux OS releases now support UTF-8 locales by default, we should just deliver UTF-8 encoded nroff man pages and eliminate the conversion process.
